Fabric Scrap Bunting

The project was added to your Craft Projects.
Use fabric scraps to create a colorful bunting for home decoration or a special occasion such as a birthday party. For the best look, use small prints for this sewing project and layer with felt for a sturdy, lasting bunting.
Cut your fabric into 8"x 9" sections.
I then layered the fabric on top of a piece of craft felt. Now I know I always shout it from the roof tops to use high quality felt but in this case get your hands on the cheap stuff! This crazy set came from the Dollar Store! By layering the fabric on top of the felt we're just creating a thicker more sturdy Bunting. Stitch the fabric on top of the felt by straight stitching or zig zagging the edges. Make it look playful and messy! It's charming to look "un-perfect!"
Next we'll make strips of fabric to lay on top. Again, this isn't perfect science! Just make strips roughly 1". We'll trim the fabric that hangs over the edges.
Lay your strips being sure to vary your colored strips.
Straight Stitch them on with a bold color that will stand out and add one more detail!
Now it's time to create our bunting. I love using Double Folded Bias Tape. It's perfect!
To make sure your fabrics are perfectly centered simply fold the Bias Tape in half and mark the center with a straight pin.
Spread the bias tape on the floor and put your center Fabric directly in the Middle using your pin as a reference! Then add the rest being sure to space them evenly. Lastly you'll straight stitch the Bias Tape together securing the fabric inside!
