I thought i would make it as simple as possible and write a separate blog about it.
I made loads and loads of bunting to decorate our wedding reception in July i wanted it to be shabby chic pretty and easy.
You will need:
a sewing machine
For my wedding bunting i bought 3 different styles of fabric from Dun Elm for £8 per meter and i used a meter of each.
However you can use old bed sheets, tops, jeans, off cuts of fabric anything!
I'm using an old Top Shop top just to show u xx
Step 1.- Cut out a cardboard triangle. This is the stencil you will use to mark out the sewing line for your bunting.
Step 4- Pin 2 triangles back to back So the pattern is on the inside. You should be able to see pen on both triangles.
Step 5- Sew along the two side edges leaving the top open so its like a triangle puppet and turn inside out so you can now see the pattern and iron flat.
Step 6- Fold your ribbon in half long ways and iron shut.
Place the top of your bunting (only open side left) inside the the folded ribbon pin and sew closed.
Step 6- Using another piece of card measure out a spacer card, this just makes it easier to keep the spaces in between the bunting even you can have as big of a gap as you like i kept this simple and choose 6cm.
Lay this between each ready made bunting triangle and sew on...
I hope this makes sense to you all its quite difficult to write sewing instructions down but its actually really easy to make.
Happy Sewing Blogging Bunting!! xx
