Bunting Personalized Quiet Book Cover

I am doing another quiet book series! I made a quiet book for my niece since she liked Grace's so much. I do really like making these books, so it was a fun project.

I debated how to make the cover and I didn't feel like doing it the same way as I did Grace's (see it HERE). I came up with the bunting idea and it isn't exactly the way I pictured it, but it works.
I cut triangles out of random scraps that matched the book colors well and used heat'n'bond to attach them to the book cover. I stitched around the edges with a straight stitch about 1/16" away from the edges. Then I hand embroidered the letters on them. It was difficult because of the adhesive and was super hard on my hands and wrists.
But it is pretty.

Then, I used a zig zag stitch to sew the ric rac over the tops of the triangles.

For the binding, I made a bias tape and hand stitched it down on the whole thing- fronts and backs. I folded the top edge over the pages and around the back, tucking it under the back of the binding to keep things neat and tidy. I hope you can see it OK here...

Overall, I am very pleased with how it turned out. I really can't wait to show you the rest of the book! I will be posting a few pages at a time now so it goes a little faster, but it is still too much to smoosh into one post. Some of them are very detailed = lots of pictures. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Stay tuned...
