"P" is for Play Stand Buntings

Sew: diy play stand buntings

Sew your own play stand flag style bunting, pennant style bunting, awning and curtains.
I've included patterns down below for 25" wide play stand buntings.

Each bunting has velcro on the back which makes it super easy to switch up:

For the post office I sewed together 3" wide x 75" long strips of red, white and blue to make a swag:

And the theater red velvet curtains are 12 1/2" w x 17"l each, velcro on one short end and extra velcro tabs 4" from the bottom to hold the curtains open:

If you're curious about the making the actual play stand we've got you covered.
Ana White made plans here, it's a super simple build and would make a great gift:

How to make play stand bunting:
** Apply medium weight fusible interfacing to wrong side of fabric for added stiffness.**

Market style awning:

1. Cut 6 and sew down straight portion of side seams only:

2. Press under 1/4" raw edge of curved portion then top stitch from front:

3. To add velcro press down 1/2" of top raw edge and sew velcro in place:

Pennant bunting:

1.  Cut 7 triangular pennants:

2. Fold in 1/2" on both long sides and top stitch:

3. Cut 25" piece of velcro and pin pennants in place evenly spaced:

4. Sew grosgrain ribbon over top raw edge through velcro:

Sweet treats bunting:

1. Cut 5 flag style pieces, fold under 1/2" on all edges except top and top stitch.

2. Cut 25" piece of velcro and pin flags spacing evenly with grosgrain ribbon on top:

3. Cut pom poms from fringe trim:
