Bitty Bunting Tutorial
 
Materials:
fabric(s)- whichever design, material, color as your heart desires
bias tape or you could make your own
scissor, pins, ruler, paper (for pattern drawing)
 
1. first a pattern, if you would like the bunting matching in size all the way.
(NOTE: not required at all)
i used basic doodle paper, drew a square and triangle with 1 inch extra all around
 




2. cut selected fabrics
i used regular cotton and the ones pictured below are flannel
 

 
after cutting, press the fabrics
if you are adding any type of embellishment do it now
i put doilies and felt stickers
 

 
3. pin together, right sides looking at each other and sew
 

 
NOTE: cut the corners edge for straight edge
 

 
4. turn material, push on the edges carefully with a pointed object and press again
 
 
5. now line your flags to which ever desire lenght you want and pin the bias tape and sew and that's it!!!!!!!!
(sorry forgot a photo of this part)
but, you should have some adorable buntings like these...
 




 
so have fun and hang some buntings!!!!
