About This Class

I remember my first sewing project that I completed, the feeling of accomplishment that I had actually made something that I could proudly hang in my home or give to a loved one as a gift.

It was bunting! Its such an easy project but really helps you to understand the basics of sewing due to its repetitive nature.

It's also a great starter project for children, both my Daughters have sewn bunting, especially at Christmas when they make it for their friends.

In this class I will show you step by step how to sew pretty bunting that is fully lined so it was last forever, there is also a bonus class on how to add lace if like me you love a finishing touch.

I have added a printable triangle template to the class materials that you can use, but of course you can easily make your own if your wanted a different size triangle.

The materials and equipment that you will need are as follows

  • Sewing machine (basic model is fine)
  • Sewing machine needle and thread
  • Main fabric (I used 2 contrasting cotton fabrics)
  • Lining fabric (curtain lining is great, I used Calico)
  • Bias Binding
  • Lace (optional)
  • pins
  • Scissors/Rotary cutter
  • Triangle template (I used a plastic quilting ruler but you can just draw a triangle on paper)

Hi I'm Mel from Handmade By Ditsy Tulip.

I recently joined Skillshare to help me to re-ignite an old skill of painting/illustration which I am absolutely loving so far (thanks lovely Teachers), but then I thought "I'd love to help others to learn how to sew"!

So, watch this space, I'm filming lessons as we speak and look forward to sharing them with you very soon.
