Emily Carlill from Love me Sew works with us on a regular basis here at Save the Date  and we love her DIY how-to’s! Sit down, grab a cuppa and read through her latest work on how to create your very own Cake Bunting! We now hand you over to Emily herself………..

You will need:

● Fabric scraps
● Bondaweb
● Parchment paper (greaseproof, tracing or normal paper will work just as well)
● Coordinating thread
● Twine or ribbon
● Wooden skewers
● Pins and scissors
● Needle
● Pencil

To make:

1. Make the flag template.

● Fold the parchment paper in half and, on the fold, draw a small triangle shape (I used the corner of a set square to get an equal sided shape).

With the paper still folded, cut out the triangle so you end up with a diamond shape.

2. Trace the template onto the Bondaweb.

● Place your flag template onto the paper side of the Bondaweb and draw around.

● Repeat to your desired number of flags.

● Cut the diamond shapes out of the Bondaweb, leaving space around the edge of the shape.

3. Making the individual fabric flags

● Place the Bondaweb flags, glue-side down, onto the back of the fabric scraps.

● Press for a few seconds to the glue fuses with the fabric.

● Cut out the diamond shape and peel off the Bondaweb paper backing.

● Repeat the above for all your little flags.

4. Make up the cake bunting.

● Fold each little flag over the piece of twine (or ribbon depending on what you are using) so that each of the triangle sides match up. Press so the sides stick together and the piece of twine is sandwiched along the top of the flag.

● Repeat for each flag, placing each quite close together to the next.

● Using the coordinating thread, hand sew small stitched around the sides of each flag.

5. Attach the bunting to skewers

● Tie each end of the twine, on which you have your string of cake bunting, to the top of the wooden skewers. Tie the ends of the twine in a bow for extra prettiness!
