I can show you a picture of the cushion but unfortunately the pics of the curtains came out as two black silhouettes - not the best way to show them off!
Anyway I promised a bunting tutorial and that is what I intend to deliver this morning. It's the first one I've done so bear with me. What you will need to make a 3 metre length of bunting with 50 cm ties at each end.
- Fabric in 5 colourways (0.25m of each)
- Bias Binding (4 metres)
- Set Square/'L' square (Object with a true right angle)
- Metre rule (Long straight edge)
- The first thing you need to do of course, is to supply yourself with oodles of lovely fabric. This is the part I like the most, deciding on those colour combinations and patterns which will complement each other well. I bought half a metre of each, which was enough to make four sets of 3m bunting. Alternatively you could have a good rummage in the remnants box to see what you can find.
- I like to lay my flags out in piles now so that I can see exactly what I've got to play with and in this case to choose which of the fabrics will contrast nicely togther. I'm aiming for 5 flags per metre so as this bunting is double sided that means 10 pieces of fabric per metre. I am making a 3 metre length so 15 flags in all.
- When you have machined all of your pennants together turn them the right way out making sure you push all of the fabric into the point to get a good finish (Use a knitting needle or a blunt pencil to get right inside) and press them flat. Nearly there!
