A couple of years ago I went quite bonkers about bunting and made absolutely loads
I was talking about this madness with a friend who said she had a new summer house and wondered if she could get bunting in different shapes, I said I’d make some butterfly shaped bunting and I got started….my machine broke and what with all the house renovations and doing loads of other crafts the bunting got put to the back of the cupboard.
Once I had my machine fixed I couldn’t find the butterfly half made bunting…. finally I did it and although I lost it again in the final part of the house renovation it has finally been given to my friend!
I’d like to do some more – I’m not sure it was the best ever bunting, the yellow thread is ‘glow in the dark’ which seemed a good idea at the time….
Since making that I have made some owl shaped bunting in a sewing class and I think I will revisit the butterfly idea again soon.
So I cut out some butterfly shapes – big little and a folded wing one, I just drew freehand but if that’s not your style there are plenty of outlines online.
I stuck the butterflys to an interfacing and then sewed them together with a ‘glow in the dark’ thread.
I then sewed some bias binding and just caught the top of the wings.
Thanks for reading, I’ve been quite brief if you want anymore information please just message me.
