How To: Quick and Easy Felt Bunting
It's deliciously sunny today... perfect weather for blogging about a rather summery project: felt bunting.

You just can't beat bunting for instant English cheerfulness - perfect for parties, or for adding a fun bit of extra colour to your everyday decor. The felt bunting is obviously not as long lasting or hard wearing as the lovely fabric designs that are really popular at the moment, but it's great for hanging along a wall, doorway, window or mantelpiece indoors and it's super-easy and quick to make.

    Step 1

    Using your template, pins and scissors cut out lots of felt triangles - I chose bright shades, and deliberately avoided using red so the red ric rac would stand out clearly on each one.

    and sew them together with a simple line of sitches.

    I left a very small gap between the triangles, leave bigger gaps to make longer bunting. Make sure you leave an "empty" length of ric rac at each end of your triangles, to serve as ties (or sew the ends into loops if you prefer).

    ... but if you're making the bunting for a special occasion (eg a birthday party), you can add some felt letters to make a fun banner. Cut out the letters you need (you may want to draw these on paper first to get the shapes right), taking care to use contrasting colours to the triangles the letters will appear on so they'll all stand out clearly.

    Then stitch them onto the triangles, leaving a spare triangle between words - hearts make quite a cute addition as spacers, eg -heart-H-A-P-P-Y-heart-B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y-h-e-a-r-t. Obviously, make sure your banner has enough triangles sewn on it for all the letters you want to add! :)
