This cute craft project is a great way to make a delightful decorative bunting garland for valentines day. This is also a sweet garland to make for nursery decor or baby showers, and the details you add make it an adorable personalised handmade gift.
Its a simple way to make bunting that’s beautiful from both sides, the beauty of felt is that it has a clean finished edge once you cut it, the trick is cutting it smoothly- you’ll really need good scissors.
- Felt in the colours of your choice, I love the colours in this beautiful felt pack from Boao
- Satin ribbon, 1/4″ wide, double faced is nice as it looks great on both sides.
- Sharp fabric shears
- Tailors Chalk or marking pencil.
- Heart template, make your own, or use our free to download template below.
Step 2: Cut pairs of felt hearts.
Step 3: Cut your template at the dotted line and use it to mark the position of your ribbon. You only need to do this on half the cut hearts.
Step 4: pin your ribbon on your mark, then add a second heart cut out on top, and pin around the edge.
Step 5: Space the hearts out as you want to, a gap of one hearts width. stitch around the edges, 6mm from the cut edge. If anything is misaligned you can trim a little at the end
This is a really fun project for beginners and kids learning to stitch, And with this technique you can make really pretty bunting in any shapes or colours you can imagine.
