How to make bunting

And now for something different. It might be obvious from this blog that I can’t bear to waste and have a desperate need to use up left overs. We have Christmas in our summers here in South Africa.
I was feeling a fiesta coming on and we have a conservatory area in our house. Why buy Christmas decorations?

I made these mini flags from bits of string and left over fabric. The triangles fit along side each other when you cut them out so you don’t waste any fabric. I tied the string together and pinned the flags to the string. Then I ran the machine in a zig-zag stitch over the flags to secure them. Party decorations just like that!

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
