Now it’s time to start the sewing!
Take out the fabric of your choice to use in the making of the banners for the bunting.
Fold and press the edges about 5-10 millimetres around the rhomb’s to the wrong side of the fabric.
Fold the rhomb’s in the middle so that a banner is created with the right side of the fabric facing out.
Press with an iron and pin around the edges.
So together the banners with a stitch (with a visible seam, much like a pair of jeans) near the edge of the banner. Leave about 1 centimetre in the top corners so that you can thread through the string.
It’s nice to use a rough household string to thread the banners. Use a safety pin!
Hang the bunting!
If you use an oilcloth you don’t have to sew since the fabric doesn’t fray. You can just cut out the oilcloth in the same way that you cut the fabric. Then you fold it and glue it over the string.
And if you don’t have the time, or patience, to sew your own bunting you can cut out the big triangles and then use a stapler to make the fabric stick to the string. Just make sure you hang the bunting up high so that no one can see your shortcut.
