Happy Wednesday sewing enthusiasts,
It’s Jennifer Tryon here with my weekly Crafter’s Companion Blog takeover! Be sure to check back every Wednesday for a special sewing blog post from yours truly. I’ll be making sacks full of exciting projects including, clutch bags, bunting and even a Gemini cover! I can’t wait to get started.
This week, I’m showing you how to make this pretty fabric bunting using the lovely range of Home Grown fabric from Threaders! Hang your’s up around the home to add a pop of color to any room!
Measure the area you want to hang the bunting banner.
Pull one piece of the fat quarter and set it aside. Cut the remaining fabric into
rectangles 4 3/4” x 8”. Using the 3rd Square die from the middle of the nesting die
pack, cut triangles in the bottom of the squares by centring the die and matching
the corners of the die to the bottom corners of the rectangle. Run these through
Cut 1 piece of the fat quarter into 2 1/2” strips. Sew the strips together lengthwise
by sewing on the narrow ends. Then Iron the long sides down the middle to
form a long continuous 1 1/4” strip. Fold the edges into the middle pressing again
making one long 3/4” strip.
Place the shorter uncut piece of the rectangles inside the bunting pinning them in
place. Leave 2” in between each rectangle. Continue this until you have the bunting
banner the length you want. Cut off any access top strip.
Sew the bias strip
securing the rectangles inside.
