Crafty Christmas Idea 8….festive bunting

Well this is my first bunting and its cute, cheery and pretty quick to whip up….all you need is fabric, a triangle template (I used my template plastic which I am loving…long story below), bias binding ( I cheated and used some cheap stuff I had lying around but the wider binding was a bit less fiddly) and I used pinking shears to make one-sided triangles…if you don’t have 4 month old twins you could probably do double sided triangles but that was looking like taking too long plus I needed an excuse to spend $50 on pinking shears!!!!!

I didn’t follow a particular pattern so your first attempt may look better than mine if you do follow a pattern….but enjoy!

long story on template plastic…I’d been looking for a few weeks and couldn’t find it anywhere at my local spotlight…on a trip when I’d practically given up on the stuff I was looking at knitting patterns and there underneath the patterns were a few piles of template plastic….it didn’t matter that the quilting section is on the very other side of the store and template plastic had nothing to do with the knitting section but there they were and I was happy!!!!
