Repost: Tie Onesie and Name Bunting

It’s been a busy week around here and I’m definitely not getting as many projects done as this pregnancy progresses, so I’m reposting this craft from several years ago that I’m sure many of you haven’t seen. Enjoy!

My mother in law is an amazing quilter and she made a beautiful quilt for Andrew when he was born. I asked if I could have the left over fabric from the quilt. I used some to make another tie shirt for the cub (he out grew the first one).

I was also able to do another project I've been wanting to do. I found the idea at Happy Together for rag quilted letters. I decided to take the idea and instead of doing the whole alphabet I just did Andrew's name to make a banner for his room.
To hang the letters, I took some of the extra binding my mother in law had made and sewed it into the cord. Then to hang it on the wall I drilled a hole through one side of a wooden clothes pin and put a nail through it to nail it to the wall. I need to get better at taking step by step tutorial like pictures, but here is the end product.

  1. Am just planning some bunting at the moment with left over fabric from my daughter's room - was just going to do quick pennants but now you've got me wondering whether I should do letters. Always fatal popping over here ... I end up with too many ideas :-) Alice @ Mums Make Lists xx

    1. hehe you're too funny,"always fatal popping over here"...that made me blush! :D I'm glad I could inspire you. I bet you could even combine a regular pennant bunting with the letters. Either way I'm sure it'll be darling!

  2. I was just thinking about these tie onsies today! I really want to make one if my friend has a boy. Love the letter bunting too! Super cute!
