If you love to sew, you can probably relate to the term “fabric stash”. It’s a great feeling when you can whip up a project from your stash that is easy, versatile and beautiful all at the same time. I have just the project for you and your fabric stash today. This project incorporates many coordinating prints and florals from my Blooming and Becoming Pattern collection. This easy DIY bunting sewing tutorial can be sewn in an afternoon.
- fabric – 5 different coordinating patterns and prints (I used 10 different fabrics as I made my bunting double sided)
- Cutting mat
- Omni grid ruler
- rotary cutter
- double width bias tape (ignore the ribbon in the picture)
- Triangle pattern for cutting (mine measured 10″ width x 13″ length)
- sewing machine (I love my Singer)
You can make this bunting as long as you wish. I made mine with nineteen banners and with each one a couple inches from the next, I used almost a whole double fold bias package.
- Place the fabric right side up on the cutting mat and line up your banner pattern on top. Place the Omni ruler along the edge where you will make the cut with the rotary cutter. Press down on the ruler with one hand so the ruler does not move and run the cutter along the edge.
- Because I wanted my banner double sided, I coordinated one side with a pink and turquoise colorway and the other side was more golden and mauve. Pin with right sides together.
- Sew down one long side of the banner and pivot at the bottom tip and sew up the other long side. Back stitch at both the beginning and end.
- Leave the top open. Clip excess fabric close to the bottom of the banner/point.
- Iron the side seams flat.
- Sandwich each triangle/banner between the bias and pin. Sew along the lower edge of the bias.
Both of these colorways of this bunting are so fun and fresh. I used a mix of my fabrics, “Abundance”, “Fullness of Joy”, “Beauty Unfolding” as seen below.
On the opposite side I used the prints, “Behold the Beauty”, “Embrace the Journey” and “Awaken & Behold”.
In the bunting below, the pale yellow is “Lemonade” and the chartreuse green is “Tumeric”.
These colors look fabulous in many different areas of the house. Try the bunting with a bookshelf, above a floating shelf or draped across a mood board.
I decided to take the bunting outside and grab some photos of the flower garden that inspired most of this pattern collection.
For that special girl in your life, try out the Girl’s Ruffle Sleeve Blouse. It is another DIY sewing tutorial which incorporates three prints from the Becoming colorway.
Here the bunting is draped over the picket fence that inspired the print, “Fullness of Joy”.
This old vintage bike basket became a garden feature this year in our English Garden.
Go ahead and grab your fabric stash and start on your easy diy bunting today. I hope you have enjoyed this diy sewing tutorial and if you have like what you have read, please share the love with a comment or a pin. Thank you!
