Handmade bunting, pink and girly for a baby girl

Coming soon to the Hours of Fun website – handmade, personalised bunting made to order.  Hours of Fun can make bunting for any occasion – new baby or baby shower, birthday present or decoration, congratulations, party decorations and much more.

The brief for this order was pink and girly which is always fun to do.  I used fleece for each flag, cutting them out using pinking shears to give a zig zag finish on the edges.  (This also stops any fraying of the material).  Each letter for the name was machine sewn onto the flags and a button was added to each of the loops at the end of the bias, once the bias was sewn onto each flag.

Wrapped in pink tissue paper, with a ribbon and tag it was ready for the baby shower.  I hope the mum to be likes it 🙂

Cheap, cheerful and a lot of fun – homemade gifts

Birthday presents don’t have to cost a lot, you can do something handmade and personalised for little or no cost.

For my brothers birthday we made him a CD.  We had a blank CD already in the cupboard – winner!
 
Some of you will know us for singing happy birthday on audio messages, sometimes normal and sometimes themed.  My brother has been our biggest fan and kept saying we should make an album so here it is!!
 
We spent 2 hours of a Sunday night making this, crying with laughter with our neighbours probably thinking we had lost the plot!  The CD consists of 13 tracks with out takes and hidden track!  We printed out a front cover, back cover and words then as a finishing touch we autographed the cover for him!

We recorded the songs using voice memos on our iPhone, then transferred them to the computer.  We mixed some of it together using Audacity , then made it into a track list and burnt it to CD.  Super easy to do, a lot of fun and my brother reported back that he loved it!!
