This tutorial has serveral stopping and changing points, so it's can be completely unique. Just make it however you'd like. I'll explain a little more in a bit...Also this was totally prompted by a visit to my friend's house where she'd just made some really cute bunting for her boy's birthday. Really pushed me to get over my fear of bias tape!
First decide on your number of triangles, font (if any) and size. I used this Bunting template and this free font for mine. I also decided on seven squares for mine so the name I wanted (James) would have a triangle either side too.
Trace the triangle and letters onto paper, then draw round onto your fabric and cut. I alternated stripey and plain fabric on my triangles.
Line up your triangles and lettering in the order you'd like it and iron in place. It will not hold like bonaweb, but I was too lazy to cut that out too, so ironing and holding in place while I sewed worked okay for me!
Sew your lettering in place with a zig zag stitch and you could leave it there, I also sewed another triangle on the opposite fabric on the back. You can see that I left it raw, I liked that effect for the fabric I've chosen and the bunting will be on a wall or door, not played with, so I wasn't concerned. You could sew the triangles right sides together and turn and iron if you wanted a cleaner look.
Here's where I wish I had a better camera! You place your bunting triangles nearly touching at the corners and about half way into your bias tape or you could use ribbon.
One triangle at a time fold over the tape, looking either side of the triangle to make sure it's as even as possible, then iron down. No photo of this as I'm a wuss and it had a high burn risk!
Once you've ironed down all the way, turn the ends in and iron them too so there's no raw edges.
Then you have to pin (boo!), otherwise your ironing will be for nothing!
Sew down the binding as close as possible to the edge and you're done!
I forgot to get a picture of the other side, but it's plain, so you could use it that way or for other occasions.
I'm thinking of doing some for Christmas gifts with Seasonal colours on one side and birthday on the other.
Took about 1 1/2 hours to finish, with both kids at home. Pretty good and I love a project I can finish quickly! And as a bonus it only used what I already had so....
