Bare boring bike basket? Try this bunting.



Instructions

    Step 1

    Cut out 4 triangles of each fabric. I used 3 different fabrics.

    Match the triangles together to make two flags in each pattern. Pin the flags together with right sides facing.

    Step 3

    Stitch along the diagonal edges of each flag with a 1cm seam allowance. Trim back the point of each flag to allow a clean triangle when turning out. TIP: I used my small scissors to push the end of the triangle out.

    Once all flags are turned out, press them with a steam iron. Using bias tape of your choice, arrange the flags at equal distance, fold the tape over and pin into place. Then stitch along the top of the bias tape to secure the flags in place.

    You are now ready to attach the bunting to your bicycle basket. I used clear nylon thread to stitch through the bias tape and in to the gaps of the wicker. This helped to hold the bunting in place to prevent it from slipping down the basket.
