So I made my bunting - and it was SO pretty ...... I want to keep it. But then I became possessed by bunting fever (careful - it is so pretty and quick to make it becomes addictive!) And what would be perfect for bunting?? well bunnies of course!
So along came my Bunny Bunting - which would be perfect for Easter, picnics or children's parties !! Bunting is also a perfect (and decorative) way to use up odd bits of material and I fear I should have really used recycled fabric ....but perhaps I can do that for the next bunting project!
My flags have been cut using pinking shears and I made the pattern up as I went along - but I have found a lovely pattern for making double sided bunting at Whip Up I think this looks quite delicious and would be a wonderful gift for a new born baby.
Here is my pattern:
Rachael Rabbit's Simple Spring Bunting
You will need:
- Triangle template
- Pinking sheers
- 14ft+ of bias tape
- A selection of pretty fabrics
- Cotton for sewing
2) Fold the bias tape and sew 14" of the bias tape together. (This will ensure you have enough ribbon on the end of the bunting to tie it up)
3) Add the flags one by one leaving just under an inch between each flag.
Note: I used a plain straight stitch - but you could use a decorative stitch if you wanted to.
3) Ensure you sew 14" of the bias tape together at the end of the bunting.
4) Hang and enjoy!
