How To Make..... Bunting
I have decided to add a new, fun section to my blog, 'How To Make.....?'
Great fun for family, friends and individuals alike, showing you how to get creative and make something beautiful for your home.
Over the past week we could have been fooled into believing that spring was here, but unfortunately the sun is hiding behind a cloud which is submerged in fog!!! So to lift our spirits and to remind ourselves that Spring is only around the corner, below you will find an easy 'How To Make Bunting' guide.
Bunting is fantastic for hanging around the house to create a beautiful Spring inspired room or country feel or in the garden - Are you thinking of having an Easter garden party??
You will need:
Fabric and thread
13mm-wide bias binding tape
1. Draw a triangle on some cardboard and cut it out to use as a template.
2. Pin the template to your fabric and cut around it using pinking shears to avoid fraying. Repeat until you have enough flags.
3. Evenly space the flags along the bias binding tape, folding
the shortest edge over, and pin in place.
4. Sew on the flags with a straight stitch, leaving at least 40cm of tape free from flags at each end for hanging.
I would love to see your work, so please e-mail any photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
