Making my own bunting

How to make your own bunting

I’ve always loved bunting – it makes any room look instantly ready for a party, looks super pretty and the great thing is how simple it is to make. I ran mine up in less than an hour using 4 different pieces of leftover material (2 lots of old curtain material and some cheap cotton fabric) and a sewing machine. If you haven’t got a sewing machine, don’t worry you can either do it by hand (although that would be a bit of a hassle) or use self-adhesive bias binding and just iron it all together!

I used this bunting template to cut out lots of triangles from 4 different patterns of material and then just sewed them onto the bias binding in an alternating pattern.

You will  need:

  • Scraps of fabric and thread
  • Scissors
  • Bias binding (approx 2cm in width)
