Rocking Dog Bunting To Colour In

Good morning from the Rocking Dog kennel. I hope you have had a sunny and restful weekend. The Dog has been making bunting for some very special little ones. Six pennants of white have been sandwiched by pennants in pretty prints. The hope is that exquisite little drawings and words will adorn the plain white pennants to make jolly wall hangings.

1.I made my bunting by firstly making a template. Taking an A4 sheet of paper I folded it in half and then drew my pennant to the size I wanted. I cut my pennant, unfolded it, and then transferred it to a piece of card. A rotary cutter and metal ruler was used to cut out my final template.

2.I chose fabrics and bias binding from Material Mountain. I selected a white cotton sheet for the plain pennants. Cotton is a really good fabric when using fabric paints, fabric pens or fabric crayons.

3.Use your template to draw out your pennants. Remember if you are using pictorial print make sure you draw out your pennants with the print in the correct direction. The white pennants can be cut out economically by drawing around template with point at top of fabric and the next with point towards bottom and so on.

4.Put your pennants fabric right side to right side and sew the two long sides together. Continue to sew all your pennants.

5.Now turn your pennants right way out. Use a pencil or chopstick to poke out the point. Press all your pennants with a hot iron.

6.Use the hot iron to press your bias binding (you could also use ribbon or fabric tape) in half its whole length.

7.Start by sewing your tape approximately 10cm before adding in your pennants between the folded bias binding. Again leave 10cm at the end (these will be your ties for hanging your bunting)

8. Press, and then get the little artists decorating!

Shortcuts. Use your template to pinking shear single layer pennants, or you could cut paper pennants and glue ribbon to link them together.

I’m hoping to get all artisty this week by getting down to some mosaic in the garden. The best laid plans……

Whatever your week holds I hope it’s a good one.
