I moved into a new place a few months ago, and I've been working on my craft room. I had seen some of these fabric buntings on a few blogs, and I decided to try my hand at it.



One side is bright fabrics - teal, stripes, and flowers, and the other side is more mellow - blue & yellow flowers, light blue stripes and light yellow fabric. All the fabrics are from the thrift store - sheets and pillow cases!

Here's a shot of it up in my craft room:



I was thinking about doing a tutorial for this - let me know if you're interested!

Neat idea!  I could get rid of tons of scrap fabric & decorate at the same time!

Congratulations on the new crafting space!  That is some collection of cool fabric for just being thrift store linens.

What a fun coincidence!
I'm working on fabric buntings myself.
Sewing the triangles together inside out, turning them and then topstitching (I know, the hard way, but I'm a perfectionist).
I love the way yours turned out. Great job!

I've been making some too, I love it. I overlock the edges of my triangles and then stitch bias tape along the top, the overlock gives the triangles a nice boarder, but it is the lazy way  Grin

Yup! I didn't do the top stitching, though. Considering adding some by hand with a nice pearle cotton. We'll see how I feel!

I was thinking about just overlocking them! I even have a rolled hem option on my serger. Maybe the next batch!

Thanks, everyone! Those of you who have made their own - I'd love to see them!
