Oh a "Bunting" we will go!

Bunting - what can I say, I have never made 'bunting before."

It stands for excitement, celebration and all around FUN!

I have engaged in making some, not that I am any good at it, but here is what I have done.

Above  - see beginning stages, cut two pieces and sew right sides  together. Trim point and them carefully reveal the point. Press - top stitch ( in my case with black thread)

 Once you have as many flags, bunting as you require.  I top stitched my flags/buntings, and then I started to attach them to the double fold bias tape (I used a 3 yard piece of black double fold quilt binding bias tape).

I left approximately 1 inch between the flags/bunting.

 I have pinned the flags/bunting to the bias tape.
Get it ready for sewing to the bias tape. Once positioned I stitched them together.  Not sure if this is how you are supposed to do it, but it's how I did it.  Yahoo.  My first strip of bunting completed.  I hope the ladies like it.


  1. Great job, Debbie! I've never made it before either, I thought I was the only one ;)
