Beautiful Bunting

I made this lovely bunting in just a few hours, it's dead simple and ever so pretty. I originally made this to decorate our house for a party but I loved it so much it's now a permanent fixture in our lounge.

All you need to create your own is:
50cm of dress cotton in three different designs
15m ric rac (in a colour of your choice)
Eyelet pliers
200 gold/sliver eyelets to fit pliers

It's so easy it hardly needs explaining, just cut out as many triangles of fabric you like, make two holes at the top and punch in the eyelets. Then slide all the hole punched flags onto the ric rac and because of its waves the flags won't move about.
*Top tip: Instead of using boring old tinsel why not decorate your tree or house with Christmas bunting. made exactly the same way but with festive coloured or patterned flags.
