Ok so you want results and you want them now right?
Alrighty then - Instant buntification comin up....
Take a lovely tea towel...
... I got mine from Freedom for only $2 ....
(also the pattern was reversible)
.... cut the tea towel lengthwise into 4 strips of even width ...
... I used pinking shears
(or as I call em zig-zag scissors)
.... and the lines on the fabric made it easier to cut.
I will add though this project is not for the fundamentalist craftsperson.
"devil may care"
is the more suitable approach here...
Cut these strips into triangles
(again use the zig-zags)
and don't worry about perfection... clock is ticking...
Ok now find some ribbon - I used cotton twill and
it worked very well...
Then all you need to do is patiently feed the ribbon through
your machine and attach the triangles as you go.
You shouldn't need pins since the sections are quite small
and easy to keep straight.
Keep going until you've attached all the triangles
and there you have it....
... rustic and rough....
... especially if you look closely ...
Which I will not.
Indeed I loved it so much I made more
in another colour...
Now let me just reiterate a few simple facts:
In UNDER 2 hours
1 tea towel was cut lengthwise into four strips
4 strips were then cut into (approx) 40 triangles
40 triangles were then attached to (approx 4 metres) cotton twill ribbon
4 - 5 metres of twill ribbon at $1.50 a metre is $7.50
1 tea towel at only $2 makes this bunting ....
THE EASIEST & CHEAPEST EVER!!
You simply must try it!
