Cars Bunting

I have noticed that the mainstream fabric shops are stocking more and more licensed prints.

I have a funny relationship with licensed children's prints. Sometimes, I sew to get away from all of the licensed gear.   However, now and again, it's nice to make a project using licensed fabric because your child expresses so much joy and enthusiasm.  My girls just don't get excited over gingham, but if you show the little one Dora....

Here is an example of a project using a licensed Cars print.

My sister made this "I love cars" bunting as a birthday gift for a 3 year old little boy.

I think it turned out great and is a nice use for the fabric.  No curtains, no bed spread, just a little touch.

There are a couple of other options out there as well.  I like these ones.

Enough said.  Have a great day!


  1. What a great way to make Disney feel homemade! Great bunting mama!

  2. I will have to remember that one! AJ did a great job.

  3. I recently scored the "I Love Filmore" fabric at Fabricland! I bought one metre, but hadn't decided what to do with it. Now you've given me an idea!

  4. The banner is very cute. Good idea.


Thanks for stopping by. I love to hear what you think!
