Party bunting flag sewing tutorial

Get the party started with handmade bunting that you can keep in its own little bag.

Themed, rainbow or Christmas it's your choice and could make a lovely gift too!

For this project you'll need to decide how many flags you need and what fabrics you want to use.

Woven cottons are best because they don't stretch.

You will also need some Bias binding tape or ribbon in the length that you want to make.

You can draft your own template and follow these instructions.

Or I have PDF templates available in small and large with a matching 'Party Bag' to keep them safe.

FOLD your tape in half length ways and sandwich your flags in.

Distribute your flags evenly by measuring and pin to secure.

Or add flags in as you sew but be sure to measure!
