I started this in the summer, when bunting was all the range, but only got round to finishing it yesterday, haha.
I had about 50 4cm squares of material I'd been using to make a quilt, but got a bit bored and demoralised with that. I'd been out in town, seen shops with over priced fabric bunting in, and said to my friend 'I could do better than that'. So I did!

It's a bit scrappy but I've got 5 sets of roughly 3m long strings of the stuff now. It's all different colours. Unfortunately they're not quite good enough to sell so I've strung them up in my room. It's always summer now!

(I cut the squares into triangles, sewed them back to back, then sewed them onto ribbon or cotton tape, then backed the ribbon/tape.) The left over triangle bits went into more triangles as well.

I love fabric buntings! these are fun! I want to make some for my daughters room I just havent gotten around to doing it yet. Good for you not paying for overpriced ones when you can make them yourself!
