It feels like all I've been eating, sleeping, doing this week is making bunting.
Over 100 metres of it for the school fair on Saturday.
Recently I was chatting with some pals who were way better sewers than me
and discovered that they had never made bunting!
Now there are a lot of great tutorials on the net, but this is how I do it.
It's fast and easy and effective.
And it does not fray. It will fade to white over 12 months outside,
but it will last pretty for a summer and that's all you can ask really!
You can use whatever you want,
but I tore a 10 inch strip off the bottom of a sheet and folded it in half and in half again.
Then I made cuts like so, making the wide part of the triangle 6 inches.
(yes the new blade on my cutter slipped, oops)
Then I got some ribbon, I paid $5 for 30 metres at Kutwells,
and I fold it in half, place my triangles in the fold and sew down.
That's really all there is to it.
I mean how easy could it be??
What are you waiting for!!
I may have mentioned before that I hang bunting for every occasion.
I feel like it signals to all "it's an occasion"! let's enjoy it.
Nothing like a bit of bunting to brighten a day.
Now if you need some vintage sheeting for your bunting,
pop over to my shop and buy yourself some!!
Or buy a kit here.
If you were looking for a tutorial for backed bunting, there's mine here.
This is what 100 metres of bunting looks like.
My back is crippled, but it's done :)
