This is very exciting! I did my very first fabric bunting, and I didn’t use the sewing machine! Good thing, because it wouldn’t have turned out as cute.
3 different fabrics, about 1/2 yard each
1 yard fusible interfacing
1/2 yard interfacing
3 plates (mine were about 1 inch different between the sizes, the largest was around 10 inches in diameter)
Step 1: Trace the largest plate onto the interfacing 3 times. Trace the medium and small plate on the fusible interfacing 3 times each. You should have a total of 9 circles.
Step 2: Iron on the 3 large circles to your fabrics- you should do 1 large circle on each of your fabrics. Repeat with the medium and small plates. Each of your fabrics should have a small, medium and large interfacing circle ironed on.
Step 3: Cut out the circles.
Step 4: Line up one medium circle onto your large circle. Make sure it is even (I used a ruler to measure). Iron to fuse together. Then place the small circle and iron to fuse together. Repeat so now you have 3 large circles. Make sure you mix and match your fabric patterns.
Step 5: Cut your circles in the middle to create 6 half circles.
Step 6: Fold the edge of the half circle over and cut to create a slit. Then weave your yarn into the holes and tie in a bow.
Step 7: Hang your bunting and admire your handiwork! ThatGuy put some nails up for this bunting (and hopefully future ones!) after he cleaned off the window sill.
Happy 4th of July!!
