After making my Patriotic and Christmas Bunting, I decided to make a whole bunch more. I cut up all of the Riley Blake Banner Panels I had and arranged them in color order. Then I arranged them into sets of nine.
I cut the white felt so that it was 1/8 inch bigger all of the way around the individual triangles.
Then I stitched around the triangles with my built-in walking foot.
I trimmed a quarter inch on top, and used the pinking rotary cutter an eighth inch away from the stitching.
Last, I added the Double Fold Bias Tape. The packages are three yards long and that is the perfect length.
I kept working until I used up all of the felt that I had on hand.
Here are my January-May bunting. I love them and am so excited to decorate my mantle each month. Good thing I have a rainbow of daisies to rotate in and out of my white pitchers.
Now I need to go buy more felt to finish my sets and decide what to do with my extra triangles.
