Large Indian Decorative Hanging
Project by Nicola Hills
You Will Need:
A set of New Delhi Fat Quarters (I used some from each of the 2 design packs)
Bosal Foam or Craf-Tex
Wool - string (for tassels and to hand)
Basic Sewing Kit
Paper, Compass (round template)
Draw a circle template on the stiffner. I used a radius of 4 1/4’’ (11cm)
Cut out 1/4 *leave a 1/4’’ for the seam allowance on the internal cuts*
Push the two open ends together to create a cone shape. I used a hot glue gun to secure.
Repeat the same size circle for the fabric top but sew down the open seams instead of glueing.
Cut 7 - 2” & 3” x 55cm strips from the desired fabrics.
With the first strip pin it R/S to R/S on bottom end of the fabric cone . Sew around using a 1/4’’ seam allowance.
Now sew all the other strips together to create one big rectangle piece, iron the seams flat.
Pin those to the strip you connected to the cone.
Small lined Bunting Pennants - cut 12 triangle shapes, sew 2 r/s together. Use pinking shears or snip close to but through the stitches, turn out, push out the point with a pokey stick, carefully. Iron and sew to the bottom of your hanging.
You can add tassels, beads, or other decorative bits to the bottom of the pennant points.
Add a piece of wool/string/ribbon for hanging.
Place somewhere where it can be admired :)
