Have you seen the absolutely amazing Feathers and Arrows party by One Stone Events?  It was originally published in the most recent issue of Festivities magazine, and the full write-up with tons of fabulous photos by Emma Grace Photography.

I had the great pleasure of contributing two small elements to this amazing party:  Peter Pan/Robin Hood hats for the kids at the party, and the Peter Pan bunting adorning the dessert table.  The layers make it look complicated, but if you can sew a (reasonably) straight line--or heck, use a glue gun!--it's actually very easy to make.

Materials for Making Peter Pan Bunting

  • Green felt, in three different shades
  • scissors
  • twine
  • sewing machine (or glue gun)

The first step is simply to cut out a lot of jagged pieces of felt in various sizes.  No need for a pattern; you want the pieces to look different and organic.  Layer them on a flat surface (like the table in the photo above) and temporarily attach the pieces together using straight pins.

Next, sew the felt pieces to twine, using a wide zig-zag stitch to bind everything together.  I used a sewing machine here, but if sewing isn't your thing, I'm quite sure a glue gun could do the job, too.  In fact, it would probably be easier and faster!
