Hope these instructions make sense/easy to follow/I'm not to hot on technical terms.
You'll need -
Card to make a template
Enough fabric to make 11 flags (6" in length and width)
2 and half metres of bias binding
Sewing machine and thread
To prevent fraying using a running stitch sew around each flag. I tried a few stitches but running stitch was by far the best.
The others seemed to bunch the fabric together. Looked a bit messy - too shabby chic - more shabby without the chic! So running stitch it is.
Crease and iron bias binding in half and pin 10" in to show where the first flag will go. This allows enough room to tie and hang the bunting. Using a straight running stitch on your machine sew from the end of the bias to your pin and insert your first flag and continue your stitching.
As you can see in the above picture once your first flag reaches the end of the metal plate on your machine insert your next flag. Use this as a guide for each flag to ensure their evenly spaced. Even Stephens.
And there you go you'll have some lovely bunting!
Would really love to see your bunting if you decide to give it a whirl.
If you love the bunting, but don't fancy the DIY bit just the shabby chic bunting bit, you can always have a little look in my etsy shop Xx
