Updated: Mar 25
Project by Michelle Roberts aka Creative Blonde
How gorgeous is the new Winter Berry fabric?
Follow my tutorial to make some scented bunting
2 FQ’s of your favourite Winter Berry fabric
2 FQ of cream solid fabric
80” Forest green bias binding
2 FQ’s Bosal fusible fleece interfacing
Dried lavender or rose petals
Basic sewing supplies
Lets get sewing…
Fuse the fleece to the wrong side of your 2 chosen winter berry fabrics.
Download and print the two bunting templates, cut them out.
Using a fabric marker, draw around the large bunting 5 times on each piece of winter berry fabric – choose carefully where you cut them – this is called fussy cutting.
Match up two of each of the different fabric bunting flags and sew 1/8” from raw edge along the curved edges.
(to make it easier you can sew ¼” from raw edge then trim)
Cut twelve 4” squares from the cream fabric, draw around the small template on each square, lay two pieces RST and sew along the curved lines.
(do not sew across the top)
Now for the fun part – choose you preferred dried flowers and half fill each cream bunting flag pocket. I chose to fill 2 with lavender and 4 with rose petals.
Sew across the top to seal in the dried flowers. Use pinking shears to trim away excess fabric or curved rotary cutter blade.
The flags are now ready to be joined together, pin a scented cream flag between each Winter berry flag, as shown in photos below.
These scented bunting flags would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift, or save this pattern and fill your bunting flags with a Christmas scent ready for December.
