Tip: A Faster Method to Make Fabric Bunting

Ula again, back with a ‘quick’ tip to make fabric bunting. In the tutorial I posted earlier this week, I make the bunting two layers that are sewn together and then turned right sides out. Today I’ll show you an alternative method which is much quicker!

Extra Materials needed:

  • Pinking shears or a rotary cutter with a pinking blade.

Instructions:

Follow the instructions in the original tutorial up to Step 2 but use a 3/8″ seam allowance instead of 1/4″.

Now, instead of placing two triangles right sides together, place them wrong sides together and sew.

Once your triangles are sewn together, pink the edges using your shears or rotary cutter.

Then continue on with Step 5 in the tutorial to attach your bunting flags to the bias tape.

 

I hope you have fun making your bunting. If you make fabric bunting from the tutorial please share a picture/link, I’d love to see it!
