Baby Bennett Bunting Tutorial
(The B cubed tutorial, if you're a math geek like me!)
|Step One: Get all your supplies. I have felt, yarn, glue |
gun and glue, scissors, and pom makers here.
|Step Three: I chose to go with a paper template. I'm slightly lazy, so I|
decided the picture on the left, tracing the cardboard, was too much work.
NOTE: I left a little extra at the top, because we will fold it down later.
|Step Four: Cut out as many pieces as you need.|
|Step Five: Go on your computer and go to 1001 Free Fonts. There, you can choose a font and preview it.|
If you need your preview type to be larger, hit Ctrl and the + sign on your keyboard.
You will see I noticed I only needed 4 letters... Oddly, they spelled BENT. So weird.
Anyway, trace and cut out! Presto!
|Step Six: Trace your letters onto felt, and cut them out.|
|Step Seven: Glue your letters down. You can sew them on...|
Did I mention I am impatient? The glue worked just fine.
|Step Eight: I used my pom pom maker to make some poms!|
|Step Nine: You want to flip over each of your pieces, and|
put your first piece all the way to the right.
In other words, flipped and backwards.
|Step Ten: Glue down your yarn and fold the top over. Keep going until you have all your pieces glued down.|
Make sure you try and space them evenly.
NOTE: Make sure you leave a long tail at the end!
|Step Eleven: Feel so accomplished so far that you get yourself a soda.|
(I know they are not good for you... I usually keep it to one a week!)
Make sure you leave a long tail at the opposite end, too!
|Step Twelve: Tie on your poms!|
I did small ones inside, but bigger ones on the outside.
Poor red pom was left out.
|Step Thirteen: Hang up your bunting and giggle with joy! |
(Excuse my mess in the background... I didn't even notice there were things on the kitchen pass-thru!)
I have other things I wanted to talk about, but I am a busy little bee! I have to get ready for a craft show.

I have never seen anything like this before... but that is what Carrie
is all about. She's very original!
Usually I try to leave you with a pic that isn't really crafty-related. Today on my bike ride, I was able to see some Helmeted Guineafowl! Seriously, these birds do not live here... Like, in this country even. So I am assuming someone lost their birds off their farm, because it seems they can be imported into the US. After reading about them, I realized that they could be my favorite bird. THEY EAT TICKS! If you don't know this about me already, I am terrified of ticks. If I ever have a yard and can have one of these birds, I would do it in an instant. Ticks be gone! So until next time...
