Sewing How To: Making Triangle Bunting, Perfect For Decorating Your Garden This Summer

Add a splash of colour to your garden this summer with some triangle bunting.

Fabric Bunting Sewing Tutorial:


Materials:

  • Fabric in your chosen colours.
  • Pins.
  • Thread.
  • Paper.
  • Scissors.
  • Ruler.

Bunting Assembly:

  1. Make a template for the bunting:
    • Cut a paper template out measuring 18x22cm, or to whatever sized triangle you want.
  1. Cut out the fabric:
    • Cut out two fabric pieces for each piece of bunting
  1. Sewing the bunting:
    • Placing right sides together sew down each side of the bunting, leaving the top unsewn. Turn the right way around.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
