Spring Bunting Tutorial
4 turquoise fabrics
3 pink fabrics
3 yellow fabrics
1/4 yd solid fabric
*You'll need a 4"x10" piece of each fabric!
1. Cut 2 4"x5" pieces from each fabric. This will make ten "flags".
2. Take two pieces and with right sides together, sewing along 3 sides, leaving a skinny side open. Repeat for the rest of your ten flags.
3. Clip the corners of your flags, turn and iron. Don't forget to poke your corners to make them crisp!
4. Lay out your finished bias tape on the floor (or on a long table). Arrange your flags, placing them with 3" between each flag. Place your first two flags 1.5" on either side of the center. Continue to lay out a flag every 3". Once they are in the order you'd like, nestle the unfinished end of your flag into the fold of your bias tape. Pin. (To recreate my color scheme, place your blocks turquoise, yellow, pink, repeat)
