How To Make Bunting

A simple project which can be used for so many different occasions.

Bunting makes a beautiful decoration for weddings, birthdays and garden parties. It can also look lovely in children's bedroom, particularly if it is personalised with their name. We have made our bunting double sided by stitching two triangles of fabric together but if you wanted to keep things simple you could make them single sided and cut them out with pinking shears or just hem the edge with a straight stitch.

Picking The Right Fabric

We would recommend using a cotton fabric, preferably poplin weight or heavier. Cottons are easy to sew and will also hold their shape well so are perfect for bunting.
