Christmas Bunting

Hello, It’s Monday again, already! For this weeks #mondaymakes I have made some festive bunting. I have used fabric from the Moda Oh Deer! range available from Trixie Lixie

First of all I made a triangle template and cut out my flag shapes, I used 6 different colours, Spots and Little Deer

I used my new pair of Fiskars pinking shears to cut out the triangles so that they won’t fray. Up until now I have been using an ancient pair of pinking shears that belonged to my Grandmother. These new Fiskar ones are so sharp! My old ones, although they are lovely to look at are hopeless to cut with!

Next place right sides together and sew up the sides leaving the top open.

Do this to all the triangles and then turn them the right way around, trim the tip to get a nice point, I used a large knitting needle to push the point of the triangle out.

Iron all the triangles, then pin onto some bias binding to hang them from, I used some gorgeous red spotty bias binding from Trixie Lixie

Fold the bias binding in half to give a neat edge, I used a piece of bunting to measure the space between each flag and I made 12 flags, alternating colours and designs.

I am going to use this bunting to decorate my stall at a charity clothes swap event that I am doing in Cardiff next weekend. Check out my Facebook page to find out more about this event. trixielixiesays
