I’ve always wanted to try a fabric bunting and since Christmas is crafty, I thought now was the perfect time. And it will also be the last. Don’t get me wrong, I love the final product, but it was A LOT of work! Maybe it’s because I am not a sewer. The amount of cutting involved nearly left my right hand crippled! I generally followed this tutorial.
After cutting out 32 triangles, ouch! I got the chance to use the burlap.
Warning: Burlap is messy to work with, once you cut it, the shedding begins.
I have another 15 triangles to make a second bunting. My mom let me use her stash of fabric to give this project a whirl, so “Hi Mom, Thanks! Here’s part of your Christmas present!” I think it will look better in her country home as it has more of that rustic feel.
Are you working on any DIY Christmas gifts? What is your crafty niche?
