Wallpaper Pennant Bunting

Whilst I was at Abode, I picked up this beauty:


It’s a wallpaper sample book.  At first look, it was frightening.


But, the more I thought about it, the more I thought I could make something fabulous.  The result?

Wallpaper Pennant Bunting



Double fold bias tape
Sewing machine
Pennant template (you can make it whatever size you want, but I’m including mine for those who are feeling especially lazy)

I’m sure you’ve seen this general concept before, so this will be brief.

Cut out pennant shapes from your wallpaper.


Bias tape has one side slightly shorter than the other.


You want the short side on top.

I like to leave about a 4” tail on the bias tape for hanging purposes.

Stitch the pennant pieces inside the bias tape.  I used a long straight stitch but a zig zag would be cute, too.


When you get to the end of that piece, put another one in.  Continue until you reach your desired length.



Add another one, if you want.


The perfect finishing touch?


This printable from the girls at eighteen25.
