I’m dusting off the blog to post a quick and easy tutorial with a free pattern download.
I made this bunting (or banner as some call it) for my daughter’s birthday party a few years ago and it’s become a cheerful addition to our dining room in the spring and summer. [I have fabric cut out for a fall and winter bunting but I haven’t actually made it yet.]
Press fabric and cut the triangles on the fold of the fabric (as shown on the pattern) with pinking shears or a pinked rotary cutter.
[Personally I recommend a rotary cutter over pinking shears. Pinking shears dull quickly and they can be very fatiguing to use. I love my rotary cutter and wouldn’t be without it. This is the one I use: http://amzn.to/2lJA2lj ]
Sew the pinked edges with a straight stitch (by machine or by hand).
Sew the triangles onto a ribbon with a zig zag stitch. To figure out how many triangles you need you will measure the width of your triangles and divide it by the length of the space you want to hang it in. Be sure to add in extra length for the hanging ends and drape as it suits you.
Hang and enjoy!
