Valentines Bunting sewn with only one line
I have seen all of these cute bunting garlands around on pinterest, along with everybody else in the world, im sure. but... the thing that kept me from making them myself was that most of the professional looking ones had these perfectly sewn triangles, and, i really did not want to have to cut out, and sew two triangles together, flip right side out, iron... you know the drill. so, i decided to do this the much easier way.
I got a packet of moda charm pack quilt squares from a local quilting shop, but you could easily find yours online. i love how they have already paired together cute colors and styles for you. that way, you just pick one that you think will work for your own decor/holiday and boom your ready. all you have to do is buy the bias tape, iron, and sew one line. it's awesome. here's how i did it.
27 quilting squares (5x5) or one "charm pack"
2 packets of bias tape, double fold, 3 yards each. making a total of 6 yards of bias tape.
thread to match bias tape
possibly a cutting board and pinking rotary cutter if you did not buy your quilting squares pre-cut.
total $ spent: ~15.00
here's a video from the yvestown blog if you would like to see. and the best part: no pinning!!
Happy Valentines Day!
