This is the second part of the tutorial on how to make bunting. We hope you find it useful if you want to make your own bunting, and that maybe it’ll inspire you to DIY at your own party; it really can be used for any kind of event. And you can even use the leftover fabric – as we did – to make a patchwork runner for the centre of the table at your event! We’ll keep you up-to-date on the progress of the shower and we’ll be sure to post lots of pictures from the baby shower when it happens in a few weeks. So, enjoy the last part of the tutorial and let us know how you get on with it!
9. Fold over the triangle/diamond shape to create two equal triangles with a small connecting piece. Pin this shape half a cm from the edge on the longest two edges; on the shortest edge leave a cm gap where the twine will go.
10. Sew along the pinned line.
11. This is how your triangle shape will look once sewn; it’s essentially become a flag.
12. Continue with this process for all colours.
13. Choose your hanging material; we’ve used garden twine.
14. To help feed the twine through the gap in the flag we loosely tied the twine to a knitting needle.
15. We fed the knitting needle through the gap at the top of the flag, and continue with each of the flags until you feel like you have enough; we put six flags on three separate sections of twine.
16. Hang and enjoy!
