a floral dotted bunting is my fave

March 18, 2014

no sew garland

I loved this Oscar de la Renta pattern so much, I decided a spring bunting inspired by it was in order. And since I always forget how the bobbin works, it’s no sew. You’re welcome.

To make your own you’ll need:
– polka dotted fabric
– floral fabric (preferably with a medium scale pattern, like this one from Joel Dewberry)
– felt
– hot glue gun
Martha Stewart Crafts fabric to fabric decoupage
– twine or thread (I used Martha Stewart Crafts gold thread)

Step one: Cut the polka dotted fabric into flags or triangles. If the fabric needs some heft, back with felt using hot glue.

Step two: Cut around flowers from the floral fabric. Adhere on top of the flags with fabric to fabric decoupage.

Step three: Use a needle to string the thread or hot glue it to the back of each flag. Done!

Two more days until spring officially starts, I will survive.

This project is part of 12 Months of Martha, one craft a month using products from the Martha Stewart Craft line.
