It's a long story.

To make this bunting I took two batik cottons (one bright, jewel-toned rainbow; the other one in blues/greens/purple/roses) and tore them into 2-3" rectangles.



Next I arranged them on woven fusible stabilizer and ironed them in place.



I took my newly ironed fabric, folded and sewed it in half the hot dog way, flipped it out so the batik showed on both sides and sewed around the edges of the little rectangles on both sides using a variety of threads. Then I cut out my pretty-front-and-back triangles.


(truly terrible couch picture)

The final step was to trim off the rainbow netting from some yarn I had laying around, fold it over the tops (to keep both sides looking all right) and sew it in place using invisible thread. I used the chenille part of the yarn as the hanging string.



It was actually a pretty fun project! My least favorite part was machine sewing back and forth, catching all those rectangle edges, but the rest was entertaining!

Very pretty. I love the yarn netting you added - it goes so well with the batik.
