Grace says: Bunting is such a pretty way to add a little character to any room, or to hang outside for a summer party. Make it any colours, any pattern, and any size and style you like!
Two (or more) types of complimentary patterned fabric
Bias binding or ribbon to complement the fabrics
What to do:
On the paper, measure out a triangle slightly larger than the size you want your bunting flags to be
Fold your first piece of fabric in half, making sure the edges match up and that it is well ironed
Pin your template on and trace around your triangle using the chalk
Repeat until you have half the triangles you need, then do the same with the second fabric
Cut out all the triangles, keeping the pairs together
Pin each pair of triangles together, right sides facing, down the diagonal sides
Machine or hand sew down each side, leaving the top unsewn and removing the pins as you go
Trim away any excess fabric at the point, and turn your triangle the right way out, using a pencil or chopstick to turn the points out properly
Repeat for all the triangles, and iron them flat again, tucking in the fabric at the tops to give a neater edge.
Lay your triangles out along the ribbon or bias binding, alternating fabrics and making sure the spaces between the flags are even. Pin in place
Machine or hand sew along the edge of the bias binding or ribbon to hold the flags securely in place, removing the pins as you go
Hang and enjoy!
