To make "B" emblem: Using our photo as a guide, cut out two felt diamonds: a larger red one and a smaller yellow one. Remove backing from yellow felt, and attach to red diamond. On other sheet of red felt, draw a "B," and cut out using a craft knife. Remove backing and adhere red "B" to yellow felt. Remove backing from red diamond; attach to bunting.
To make cape: Draw two cape shapes onto red fabric, sized to fit your baby. Cut out both pieces. With right sides together, stitch 1/4-inch seam all the way around, leaving a 3 inch opening in the center bottom of cape. Turn inside out, and press with iron. Stitch opening closed. Stitch cape to the back of bunting, from shoulder to shoulder.
