Tutorial! Quick charm pack party bunting

Here is a fun idea we came up with this week: charm pack bunting! Quick and simple and a great way to use those fun fabrics you just had to have so you grabbed a charm pack. Let’s get started!

Supplies:

One charm pack for about three metres of bunting
Three metres of bias binding per charm pack (plus extra if you want long ties)
Coordinating thread

Cutting:

1. Find something round to trace and mark where you need to trim off the corners of each square.

Sewing the flags:

3. Put the pieces in pairs. I chose to arrange them so each bunting flag would be different on the reverse.

4. Put each pair right sides together.

5. Sew with about a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

6. Trim the curves, turn right side out and press each flag.

Assembling the bunting:

7. Arrange in the order you like. I just didn’t want two of the same next to each other, but otherwise tried to keep it pretty random.┬áDon’t forget to check the opposite sides to make sure you’re happy with that arrangement too!

8. Fold your bias in half and sew together, leaving about 7 inches free before adding your first flag.Capture the raw edge inside the bias, reversing at the start and finish of each flag. Leave about 1/2 to 3/4 an inch between each flag (I just eyeballed it). Try not to stretch the bias as you sew.
