Today's LLC project is DIY Bunting! I have been wanting to try this for a long time but to be honest, it looked a little intimidating! I finally decided to make a couple fabric bunting lines, one for my friend, who is having a baby girl soon and one for my niece's 12th birthday. I'm already planning more to make because of my amazing results! Boy ones are next on the agenda! Stop by and see Monique's adorable paper bunting project, too!
Supplies: Fabric Rectangles (6"x7")2 for each pendant + Rug Binding (8 ft.)
Pantry Supplies: Sewing Machine, Iron, scissors, pins, vanishing ink pen, cutting board.
You will want to use fabrics that make each other pop!
Fold your rectangles hamburger style so that they measure 31/2 inches by 6 inches. Then iron them flat, draw a straight line diagonally across the fabric.
You should have 3 pieces after the last step, one triangle and two scrap pieces. Do this with the rest of your fabric pieces. I made 9 pendant buntings so I needed 18 fabric rectangles/triangles.
Next, pair up your pieces. With the patterns facing pin and sew two sides of your triangles. Then turn them back to their pattern sides. You should have a perfect triangle now.
Fold and iron your rug bunting in half. You will want it to be as close to perfect as possible.
Starting about 10 inches into your binding, start pinning your pendants inside of your binding. Space them about 2 or 3 inches apart.
Now sew all the way down your bunting, making sure that your pendants are secure and properly sewn in. Then, Enjoy!
