More Florals and Bunting

I think it’s remarkable how simplicity can sometimes be the perfect recipe for charm. These magical little buntings are for my wedding, but because they are made of fabric I would feel perfectly comfortable hanging them up in my home for keeps. Like over the windows or lining the door. Mmmm.

The trick is choosing a pleasing color palette and pattern combination. These fabrics are essentially the flavor of my wedding; I like things a little eclectic and whimsical. However, I also think this style of bunting would be equally cute in a solid color or a using just one patterned fabric.

Cut your fabric in rectangles and fold in half. Cut the ends in triangle or reverse triangle (i’m considering scallops for next time).
