i just love me a good bunting. don't you? if you don't, well, this isn't quite the tutorial for you. but if you do, stick around! i'm gonna show you how to make one!
i am making an autumn one. (can't you tell)

heat n bond, fabric, interfacing, bias tape, or quilt binding, pinking shears, and a rotary cutter sure is handy but not necessary.
first, make your triangle pattern, i cut mine out of cardstock. of course it can be as large or small as you like! my triangle was 6 inches across the top, and 6.5 inches down each side.
cut out your fabric and interfacing! cut out two pieces for each bunt (?), for this particular bunting there are 6 letters, so i cut out four per fabric since i had 3 fabrics picked out.
adhere interfacing according to the directions.
so this is what you should have! don't worry if the interfacing hangs off the side because you can't cut straight. it will all come off later!
now trace your letters on the heat n bond BACKWARDS please. i used some chipboard letters from my sadly neglected scrapbook stash. apply to your fabric. (back side if there is one)
PAINSTAKINGLY cut out your letters. just kidding. it doesn't take long, maybe 5 minutes. sharp little scissors are great for this!
adhere to your fabric triangles..
..then pin to the coordinating back. or mix it up! my slight ocd tendencies would not let me.
sew about 1/2 inch around the sides.
trim with the pinking shears..
then lay it out on your trim, folding it over and pinning it down where you like it.
sew. i fold over the trim edges and sew them down. easy peasy!
speaking of enjoying, how would you like to win this little bunting?
