My dear friend Heidi is having her first baby. Her and her husband are going to be the most amazing parents! I wanted to jump on the trend and make them some baby bunting for their nursery (and it also doubled as decoration for their baby shower). Her nursery will be super colourful, focusing on red, mauve, teal and pink, so these are the colours I used for the flags. This was very simple and super fun to make.
Start by picking the fabric you will use. I decided not to repeat any fabrics and to just use numerous different patterns and colours only once. I like the look of repeating fabrics too, but Heidi is super colourful, so I chose not to repeat.
Cut out two traingles from the same fabric. My triangles were 6 1/4 inches x 8 1/4 x 8 1/4.
Put the right sides of the fabric triangles together and sew up the 8 1/4 sides using a 1/4 inch seam allowance (leave the top of the triangle open).
Turn the triangle right-side-out and press it really nice and flat with your iron.
I laid all of my triangles out to get the order of the flags all set up:
I bought bias tape because it comes in long lengths and is so much easier than making my own. Insert the triangles into the bias tape and sew it shut.
Here is a short video clip of the making of this fun project. This was recorded using the super, fun app called Vine.
