I have this little empty corner in my living room, where I try to grow a ficus plant. The plant looks quite lonely over there and I thought I would make something cute to keep it company.

- Print out your template.
- Fold fabric in half and cut around the template. This way you’ll have two layers of fabric at the same time. Use the ruler to cut straight lines.
- Put the fabric triangles right side together and sew down the long sides.
- Trim excess fabric at the tip.
- Turn the triangle right side out and using a pointy tool (but not too sharp) push the tip of the triangle (I used a crayon)
- Do as many triangles as you like then press them all.
- Trim the excess fabric sticking out.
- Time to attach the triangles to the ribbon. Put the 2 ribbon strips right side together and sew down on one side, as close to the edge as possible.
- Open up the ribbon casing and arrange your fabric triangles as you like.
- Close the ribbon casing and pin
- Sew down as close to the the edge as possible.
- Press again and hang on a wall, your Christmas tree or your fence.
Now that you know how to make your own bunting, you’ll probably want to keep making these cuties over and over again!
