"B" is for Burlap Bunting #2

Sew: primary burlap bunting

A simple sewing project that can be tailored to fit any color scheme.
 Using burlap scraps and primary colored gingham cut on the bias this bunting comes together very quickly.

 A special request from a repeat customer who wanted to coordinate the bunting with her son's other birthday decorations.

She also asked for larger triangles, each measuring 12"tall x 10"wide at top, with 14 triangles total.

How to make gingham trimmed burlap bunting:

1. Supplies:

14 burlap triangles - 12"long x 10"w
28 bias cut gingham strips - 1" w x 15"l
white cotton bias strip - 1"w x 5 yds.

 2. Press each bias strip in half creating a channel for the edge of the burlap to rest:

3. Place burlap in channel and straight stitch shut:

4. Trim ends flush with burlap then repeat for other side and trim.

5. Add top white hanging strip in same manner, leave about 2" between triangles:
