Jubilee bunting!


Bunting is easy peasy to make! I whipped this up while I watched an old episode of ER this afternoon.

First you need to cut yourself a load of triangles – I made a cardboard template and had lots cut in no time. If you are making double-sided bunting you’ll need an even number.

Place two triangles together face to face and sew down the two long edges.


Then turn them inside out and iron the hell out of ‘em. They’ll look all neat and pretty… see!


I used cheap apron tape folded in half and ironed flat then I inserted the triangles between the fold about 2” apart, pinned and sewed through all four layers (2 tape and 2 bunting).


Et voila! I used red white and blue colours because it’s the jubilee this weekend and I love our old queen. Those of you who have been following for a long time will recognise scraps from dresses I have made – always keep your big scraps! If I have enough I might make a Union Flag too…
