I’m so excited to finally be able to post this mini bunting tutorial – not only is a free DIY video, it’s a little sneak peek into the videos I created for the Hot Air Balloon Tutorial App.
The cute little flags you see on the Balloons are made with just some fabric scraps, webbing and perle cotton. The best part is that there’s absolutely no sewing required. Yes, lovely people, this is no sew fabric bunting!
You will need:
- Fabric cut into 5cm/2″ strips (10- 30cm long)
- 2.5cm/1″ fusible webbing (hemming web is perfect)
- Perle cotton (size 3, 5 or 8 will all work fine)
- Embroidery needle & some scissors
Here’s a little bunting triangle template for you, although you could just as easily draw your own 2cm wide and 2cm high. Simply print it at 100% (no scaling, no fit to page). I’ve used this bunting for way more than balloons – it’s great to decorate kitchen shelves, adorn cakes and as a finishing touch on party tables.
So there you have it, the first of what I hope will be many video tutorials for you. A big thanks to Meg Young and Matt Cluett who shot the video and stills so beautifully (and edited out all of my tongue tied nervous moments… it was my first ever video!)
