Seaside inspired bunting

I had some left over fabric from Samuel's floor quilt so I decided to make some matching bunting that I could hang from the wigwam.

If you have a sewing machine and even the most basic sewing skills, you can make pretty bunting like this!
Here's how...

1 Bunting

How-to step by step

  • Making bunting - Steps 1-4

    Step 1

    Start by printing out the bunting pattern and cut out. I like to trace the shape on to a thick piece of cardboard making it easier to draw round. Place pattern piece on to your fabric and trace round edges with a water soluble pen. Cut out leaving a 1cm seam allowance on the long sides of the triangle pieces. Lay your two triangle shapes right sides together Sew along the two long sides of the triangle shapes, (you can do this in one go by pivoting the needle at the end of the first line, see pic below)

  • Making bunting - Steps 5-8

    Step 2

    Trim off any excess fabric near the tip of the triangle Turn your fabric right side out, and use a pointed tool to push into the very tip of the fabric (I used a chop stick).

  • Making bunting - Steps 9-12

    Step 3

    Continue sewing as many triangles as you need, then iron them nice and flat. Trim off any excess threads, and the tiny points of fabric sticking up. Pin triangles into the bias binding leaving a “tail” of bias tape your desired length at each end. Start by sewing along bias tape, sewing closed the fold of the bias tape. Continue sewing along the bias tape, sewing the triangles in place.
