With autumn here and the days getting shorter,
I wanted to add some colour to our living room and brighten it up.
I brought a vintage bunting scrap pack from my friend Kate
who runs Fabrichicks now and decided to make some bunting
(she still has a few on the website).
I cut 6 x 4 rectangles and then pressed them in half like this.
Then I cut a 2 x 2 triangle off the edge like so
A picture is worth 1000 words I hope!
Then I laid them in pairs, right sides together and sewed around three sides
leaving the top open. Trim the points and clip the centre
and then turn right side out. Use the points of the scissors to push out the points.
Then I folded a piece of bias binding in half and sewed the bunting into it.
It's just a short piece but it makes such a difference to the corner of our living room.
A little bit of summer sunshine to brighten it up.
It's not hard and didn't take me long at all.
It's the little things that make all the difference.
