Making bunting

I spent a day making bunting with a good friend this week. After an excursion to the fabric store we came home with ecru gingham and palest mauve linen with hydrangeas.

We stitched the flags uncut in a long line.

 After cutting out and turning we laid the flags out - we chose to leave a small gap in between and alternated the fabric.
 Sewing on the bias binding.
 The finished flags. So pretty.
This was our first try at bunting. It is easy if a little fiddly. Sad to see so many makers selling their work for so little though - this takes a lot of materials and a fair bit of time. Great result and so worthwhile. I want to see creative work valued. At least these flags will be well loved.


  1. It looks cute...lovely colours...

    I've passed the award on to you today if you are interested Jodie...

    Have a cool weekend.

  2. Hi Deb
    thanks so much. I am very excited! Is it coming via email? I'm looking forward to it.

    1. Oh sorry Jodie...I've only just read your reply

      You see all about it here:

      It would be great if you could pass it forward to new to you blogs too...that's if you have time and the inclination.

      Have a great weekend,

  3. Love your bunting and your Duce from the previous post. There's nothing better than having a pantry full of homemade sauces, jams etc.

  4. I've never seen bunting sewn like that Jodie. I have always cut then sewn them together.

    You are very right about the price sellers charge but unfortunately it's the same with everything that's handmade. Thank you playing along once again. Have a wonderful week.

  5. Gorgeous! I have made a gipsy inspired bunting that I've gifted and I agree, it takes some time and is costly.
