Whimsical Blue Felt Bunting

I found this blue arrow bunting made of felt at The Land of Nod children's furniture and decor store.  I love to look at all their accessories.  I made the "love" sign by stitching cloth remnants onto a dowel, glued ribbon and stitched the heart and the word 'love'.  The angel is an original painted ornament by my artist mother, Ofelia Esparza.  The grafitti "jaxiejax" sign was a gift from an art friend.  The cloth ball garland is from Crate & Barrel.  The calendar with the whale is a 2012 calendar from Paper Source.  I've kept it because the images for each month are lovely.
