Bee happy .... make some pretty vintage style bunting

I bought some handkerchiefs recently and decided to make some vintage style bunting with them.
I cut each hanky in half diagonally and then folded in half again and stitched along one side.
I folded this back out and pressed it with the iron.

I then found some tape for along the top and folded this in half over the long edge of each hanky.

When I slotted the hanky in between the tape I also chose some laces and ribbons and pinned each section as I went along

Finished bunting pictures coming soon.

  2. Hi Deb,
    Your bunting will look so sweet when it is all the little details..xo

  3. Delightful handkerchiefs, Deb! I'm excited to see the upcoming bunting photographs.

    I do so like hankies, and I will keep a look out for them because I'd like to start using them again.

    Blessings for a creative day,
    Marianne xo
