Zak and Link Personalised Bunting

15 Jul

We definitely love the cute over at bunted! HQ, and baby bunting is without a doubt got “cute” covered. But sometimes it’s nice to do something a little different, and this was certainly the case for our most recent project.

Zak and Link two brand new boys born in Australia, and a friend was looking for some personalised bunting that would suit their unusual (but totally awesome) names, and impress their design savvy parents. I met with Natalie and together we chose the fabric at our local fabric Mecca, Hometown Rochester.

We love the whale fabric to within an inch of its perfectly woven life. It’s cute, but not too cute, and it says baby boy, without throwing too many gender stereotypes in your face. Safe to say our friend Nat has some seriously good taste. We love it! We even customised the font on this occasion, using Bebas Neue from Font Squirrel. I think it works really well because it’s narrow, and fills the length of the pennant.

As difficult as this ampersand was to sew – I’m absolutely delighted with the results. Also: how much fun is it to say ampersand? I feel a bit clever!

Nat was really happy with the results, and I hope the lovely Zak and Link get to enjoy their bespoke bunting soon!
