Bunting is the perfect finishing touch for a party setting or even to decorate in your home. Using a ric rac trim gives each pennant a cute finish and adds a little something special to this simple project. This can be a great way to use up smaller pieces of fabric, or use a collection for a more uniformed look.
The fabric I've used is my Strawberry Picking organic cotton collection which is available now from debbieshoresewing.com

What you'll need for 10 pennants:
38” x 8” main fabric
38” x 8” backing fabric (a little less if your fabric is non-directional)
150” ric rac trim
Approx. 90” single fold binding
Use 1/4" seam allowance throughout
How to sew:
1. Cut 10 pennants from the main fabric and backing fabric, using the template. Each triangle measures 6” across the top and 7” to the point.
2. Sew the ricrac trim right sides together along the long edges of the main pennants.
3. Place the backing fabric over the main fabric, right sides together and sew along the two long edges. Snip across the point.
4. Turn the pennant right side out and press. Trim across the tops of the seams.
5. Repeat with the remaining pennants.
6. Fold the binding in half lengthways and press. Place each pennant, spaced evenly, across the strip of binding, leaving enough at the ends to tie the finished bunting up. Tuck each pennant inside the binding and sew. Fold over the ends of the binding to neaten.
Your Ric rac Bunting is now ready to hang!
