Sewing Tutorial: Quick Triangle Summer Bunting

I can’t wait for the weather to improve so I can get this bunting out to brighten up my garden, I hope I won’t be waiting for too long!

Soon as I saw this bird fabric I knew it would be perfect for some bunting I was wanting to make and I paired it with some yellow and red fabric I had already in my stash. I think I have been a bit overly optimistic with making this so early in preparation for hanging outside, I have a feeling I may be impatiently waiting quite a while for the weather to warm up a little more and the rain stop a bit so I can get it outside.  

Bird bunting tutorial Instructions:


  • Fabric in your chosen colours, I used a bird fabric and a yellow and red 
  • Bias binding 
  • Pins
  • Thread

Bunting Assembly:

  • Make a template for the bunting: 
    • Cut a paper template out measuring 18×22 cm, or to whatever sized triangle you want.
  • Cut out the fabric:
    • Cut out two fabric pieces for each piece of bunting
  • Sewing the bunting:
    • Placing right sides together sew down each side of the bunting, leaving the top unsewn. Turn the right way around. 
  • Sewing the bunting to the binding 
    • Starting 10cm from the start of the binding, place a piece of bunting into the bias binding so half the binding folds to the back and half to the front and pin. Leave a gap from this piece of bunting, I left 8cm, and then pin the next piece of bunting. Repeat this process until all the bunting pieces are pinned in place then machine sew along the edge of the binding.  
  • Finishing the binding:
    • At the start and end, fold the binding over twice and slip stitch down the edge to secure, this will hide the raw edge.
