ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #4

ReP-A-R-E (RePurposing, Alterations, Repairs and Embellishments) #4 is using scraps and haby from the stash.

I made a whole load of mini bunting to decorate my bathroom and tie in with my blue towels.

It was fairly fiddly, and some of the points are not that great.
It used multiple different fabrics in shades of blue, beige and white from the scrapbox.

I made my own template for pennants which are 2.5 inches tall and 2 inches wide plus seam allowance. They were deliberately small as I was using them in a small bathroom in multiple places.

Each flag has the same fabric both sides, stitched, turned, pressed, topstitched and then arranged semi randomly. I sewed them onto premade bias binding which is perhaps a little wide for the teeny triangles but was what I already had.

It gives a really fun feeling to the bathroom which makes me smile. I used double sided sticky tape to attach to the blind, mirror and etc.

I think that this little bunting is my favorite so far of your RePARE projects... really adds a bit of sewing-dash to the smallest room in the house!
