Mini Bunting Tutorial
My row is the one in the middle of this bright seaside themed quilt. I pieced sandcastles, added a fused bucket and spade and finished it with some mini bunting (which I pinned on rather than sewing on - too hard to quilt around otherwise!
This will give you a string of mini bunting of a yard or so - simply increase the number of flags and the length of the ribbon to suit what you'd like.
Narrow ribbon - 1 yard
Scraps - 12 x 1"x3"
Heat'n'bond' (or similar) - 6" square or equivalent.
Finish the rest in the same way.
Of course, if you are really keen you could add a line of stitching (along the ribbon, or along the ribbon and around each flag).
I love this little bunting! The good news is that I have LOTS of scraps (but that's a subject for a whole other post!) - I could make enough of this to decorate the entire house! I'm not sure that the rest of the family would stand for it though.
Have fun and let me know if you make your own!
