Anyway I'm on bunting (rather predictably!). So whilst making some bunting thought I'd put together a bunting template which shows a useful way of maximising the number of flags you get out of a 1/4meter piece. We all have our own way of making bunting and this is my preferred method. Have also included some LOVE applique letters. Obviously our free bunting template can be used for any bunting and it would also look rather nice in rose prints too.
Each 1/4meter piece of fabric can produce 4 full flags (4 front and 4 back).
Here is how our flags look so far.
If you want to download and print our Free Bunting template please click HERE. Note it should be printed on A4 size (flag size when printed should be 20cm across and 24cm down the longest point).
You can fancy up the front of your flags however you want. We have used ribbons, ric rac and appliqued using fabric offcuts. Our hanging ribbon is 25mm wide grosgrain folded and flags attached using zigzag stitch to add interest.
We have also put together a fabric and ribbon bundle to compliment the pattern.
Red, White & Blue Ribbon Bundle contains 11meters of funky red, white and blue ribbon & ric rac plus a further 6meters for free and costs £5.50. Perfect for appliqueing bunting or other projects.
Our Royal Fabric Bundle contains polka dot fabrics from Tanya Whelan and Bella Solids in White & Red. It costs £12.50 and you can make up to 24 flags from this bundle (or anything else you want to make!).
