A-Bunting we will go – Act 4
In which Miss Lily puts those dangly bits away and claps her hands with glee – you can never have too much bunting!
Okay – I know this Christmas folly has gone on and on a bit – I was always the student who could never keep to the word limit :-) – but this final act is short and sweet!
Tie the dangly bits off in a knot that is flush with the point of the triangle.
Thread the dangly bit onto a relatively fine needle – clearly you don’t want it fat ’cause it will be a major pain to run through the two layers of fabric, but I have shaky fingers so cannot use those hair-like needles. Use whatever feels good is my mantra!
Slide the needle into the bottom of the point, up between the layers and out an inch or so up. (Gosh, you can barely see the needle in this photo – very useful photo!)
Trim the end off flush with the fabric. Of course, my mate Pete reckons the dangly bits are a feature and thinks I should leave them on last week’s Halloween bunting. Maybe it’s a boy thing. But if time is sparse, feature they can be!
Give the bunting a good press with the iron and … (gleeful grinning and hand clapping going on here!)
Yum! Christmas bunting. This batch is for Nanny for her 83rd birthday – but there are plenty more triangles waiting!
Hope you found A-Bunting we will go useful :-) If you would like any clarification of any of the steps, drop me an email!
