I used pale blue ric-rac and red, white and blue felt. The flag are triangles 7.5cm at the base with the point 7.5cm long. For about 2m of bunting I cut 27 triangles (9 red, 9 white and 9 blue) out of a rectangle of felt, or just use up your scraps.
|You can use pinking shears for a zig-zag edge|
Then cut 27 squares, mine are 3cm.
Sew the button through the square to create your mini bunting flags in any pattern combination your like. My buttons came from Sew Sweet and Emma also sells the felt.
Sew the triangles onto the ric-rac, I tried spacing them apart, but they just didn't look right, so I put my triangles next to each other. You could use ribbon instead of ric-rac, but the ric-rac hooks over itself making it very easy to tie on and stay put!
I'm going to visit Wendy at Handmade Harbour and all the other wonderful bloggers for this week's Handmade Monday
Enjoy the sunshine!
