Oilcloth bunting is a great way to brighten up your garden or outdoor space. http://www.onlyoilcloths.co.uk has dozens of patterns to choose from, modern, retro, spotty, bistro themed and more. I choose a bright floral oilcloth for my bunting material.
First I made a stencil of the bunting triangle with a piece of cardboard, then simply used a crayon to mark out sections to cut on the back of the fabric.
Now I had lots of triangles, and some natural coloured twine to thread them onto.
Next I used a regular hole punch to make holes to thread the bunting.
I began putting the bunting together outside, and in the wind discovered a problem. My pieces were bunching up together.
I solved this by using the twine to make little knots to keep the triangles in place, then snipping off the excess string. It was a little fiddly, and there was probably an easier solution that I didn't think of, but it did the job.
