Good morning and welcome to
another tutorial during my
Cozy Christmas Sew Along!
Today I'm showing you how I made my
I used the B-14 from my
for this weeks tutorial.
It's the perfect size for a cute bunting!
You will need two - 4" squares
of the same print for each bunting piece.
I cut 38 sets...
for a total of
38 bunting triangles.
Or you can use two sets of
Cozy Christmas 5" Stackers:)
I used these plus some of the prints
in the Cozy Christmas fat eight panels.
I used one 4 yard package of
1/4" double fold bias tape.
I placed 2 matching prints
with right sides together like this.
I traced all the way around the
B-14 Sew Simple Shape
on one of the squares only
and then pinned together.
When using the 5" squares ...
I traced in the bottom corner so that
after sewing and trimming I could
use the leftover fabric
for something else:)
Waste not want not!
I sewed on the two traced lines
down both sides only...
and backstitched where I
stopped and started on both ends.
I traced the top line even though
I did not sew on it because
I cut right on that line after trimming
so that each bunting piece
will be exactly the same size...
Just like this.
I cut right on the top traced line
but trimmed about
1/4" past the sewn lines.
I also cut the tip off just a bit:)
I turned each piece right side out
and used the Clover turning tool
to gently push out the point.
I pressed it flat...
And trimmed the little triangles
off on each corner....
Now it's ready to sew into the bias tape.
Unfold the bias tape with the short fold on top and place a bunting piece inside.
I left about an 8" tail on each end for tying.
Start sewing on the end of the bias tape...
backstitch when starting and stopping and when you get to each bunting piece...
Sew across the bias tape and the top of each piece at the same time like this.
I sew one piece at a time and then place the next one in and continue sewing.
I do not find it necessary to pin but you could pin if you wanted:)
Here is what the other side looks like.
I sewed 38 bunting pieces because
that's how many fit on one 4 yard package of bias tape
with an approximate 8" tail on each end:)
I love how it turned out and after finishing one 4 yard length ...
I immediately cut more 4" squares to make more!
It's super easy and addicting...
Bunting can be hung anywhere and it
always makes a fun and festive addition to any decor.
I love it!
It even looks cute on my aqua piano:)
I hope you have fun making your own Cozy Christmas Bunting!
Add it to your holiday decor and make your home cozy:)
Next time I'll show you something else
that I made using B-14 Sew Simple Shape
so stay tuned!
