Name buntings (for baby nursery)

When my kids were born 8 years ago, I made these name pennants/buntings for their (shared) nursery. The colors matched the sheets, bedskirts, mobile, crib quilts, and mural.

When DH’s friend had a baby last year, I decided to make the baby her own name bunting. Her mom texted a pic of her nursery, so I matched the colors as best I could from my stash. Still had to go to the store for a length of bias tape (and oh, the color-matching was a challenge – come on, Wrights, at least get your dye lots consistent), but was a pretty easy, fast, and inexpensive baby gift. Shown in my daughter’s room, just so you can see it hung up.

[Still can’t get drag and drop to work here…any advice?]


These look great! I have “make buntings for baby’s room” on my crafty wish-to-make list and finally signed up for a “get to know your sewing machine” class so I can try my hand at fancy ones like yours. :slight_smile:

It is a thoughtful gift idea and Yay! stash busting!


I am ALL about the stash-busting.


These are beautiful! I love personalized baby things.


They are great, I love bunting!

Such a unique way to personalize a room, and a beautiful gift for your friend’s baby. The ones for your children are darling. Who knows, they may show up in a college dorm one day!

How wonderful to see your old buntings, and the new one. They all look amazing, and even if the colours aren’t completely the same I’m sure it’s still loved
