Simple Fabric Bunting
I decided on triangular flags 5" by 7.5" and cut out a pattern on graphing paper.
My supplies consisted of a yard total of different fabrics in aqua, white and lavender, a half yard of fusible web, and two packages of extra wide double fold bias tape with thread to match.
I cut 8" wide strips of fabric and folded them in half length wise or 16" wide strips of fabric and folded them over to make them 8"x45" strips. Then I cut 8" wide lengths of fusible web, slipped them between the layers of fabric (printed side facing out) and ironed them all together.
Then I placed the pattern on the ironed fabric, marked the corners with pencil and using a metal straight edge, cut out the triangles with a fabric rotary cutter. Then I'd just rotate the pattern and cut another triangle from the other side, so there was no wasted fabric!
When I'd finished cutting out the flags I laid them out on the table to check on the color order and the length of the bias tape, which was 3 yards.
I pinned the triangles inside the folds of the bias tape with two pins per flag - one pin isn't quite enough for me, at least.
Then I used a zigzag stitch to sew the triangles in place. I made loops on the ends by just folding the bias tape back and zigzagging over the edges.
Done in a day and a half!
Can you guess my favorite colors? I don't change much over the years!
