How To: Make your own Jubilee bunting
Fancy making your own Jubilee bunting? Irena Spence, of Cambridge's Sew Knit Craft, shows us how
You will need:
Three strips of fabric in different colours/designs, each 25cm wide
Triangular flag template
Bias binding, enough for the length of bunting required
Sewing machine, although the bunting can be made by hand
What you do:
1. Using your template, cut out your flag triangles.
2. Place the right sides of two of your cut-out triangles together.
3. Sew them along the two long sides using a quarter inch seam. Carry on doing this until all of the flags are made.
4. Turn the flags out so that the right side of the fabric is showing. You will need to use something, like a pencil, to help you get a nice point at the bottom, but be careful not to go through the fabric!
5. Iron your flags.
6. Fold your bias binding in half lengthways and iron it down.
7. Place the unstitched top of each of the flags, spaced approximately two inches apart, between the folded bias binding.
8. Stitch the flags within that fold using a zigzag stitch. Hang up your bunting and enjoy!
