Fabric Bunting is used for all kinds of occasions. If you are hosting a party, then it will bring color, fun and excitement to your party. Below are easy to follow instructions on how to make fabric bunting.
Make your own bunting in no time before the guests arrive if you host a party and you’re not quite finished decorating! Just in time for Christmas! The template for this craft project is available to purchase here!
- A few pieces of fabric in various colors, patterns and textures (I used cotton fabrics, burlap, soft felt and organza)
- Ribbon (I used golden ribbon I’ve got from this Burlap table runner project) – 2 strips. Alternatively, use bias tape.
- Optional – bunting Template (get it from here if you don’t want to make your own)
- Cutting mat
- Rotary cutter
- sewing machine
Step by step guide:
- Print out your template for the flag bunting.
- Fold fabric pieces 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 sides together and stitch 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) to get a nice sharp point.
- 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 your fabric banner on a wall, your tree or your fence.
Now that you know how to make your own first flag, you’ll probably want to keep making these cuties over and over again! But for now, let the celebration begin!
