Fabric Bunting

Who doesn’t love fabric bunting?  The possibilities are endless!  Whether you are decorating for a holiday, party, or nursery, this can add to the ambiance.  I’ve created a tutorial with my handy dandy Cameo!  (You don’t have to have a Cameo to complete this project.  I am just a little addicted to mine and use it for virtually EVERYTHING!)  I’m going to show you an easy peasy way to create your own Fabric Bunting!

Wanna create your own Fabric Bunting?

Here’s what you need:

Cutting mat
Acrylic ruler
Rotary cutter or Exacto knife
Fabric
Ribbon
Sewing machine
Cameo/cardstock (optional)

1.  To begin, I used my Cameo to create a template.  (Obviously you don’t need your Cameo for this.  I just wanted it to be precise!)

2.  Choose your favorite fabric to use.  {I chose black, white and yellow because I’m kinda crushing on that combo at the moment.}  I used the triangle template and cut out all the fabric.  How much you need depends on what size space you want to fill.  I cut out 12 triangles of each fabric and had PLENTY left over.

3.  Plan how you want to arrange the triangles.  (I didn’t want the black and white patterns next to each other.  So I placed the yellow every other and alternated the black and white patterns.)
4.  To bind together, I used 1.5 inch wide white ribbon.   Make sure you leave enough for a “tail”.   I placed the fabric on and folded the ribbon over and pinned.

5.  Next I used my sewing machine to stitch it together.

6.  After it was all stitched together, I ironed it so it looked nice and pretty!
