In this post: Do you have scrap fabric kicking around? Why not make a scrap fabric rag bunting? It’s easy and will only take a few minutes.
Oh how I love cheap and easy! Cheap and easy projects of course! Case in point, this adorable rag bunting was made entirely of scrap pieces of fabric I already had in my sewing drawer. And let me assure you I do not have a large stash. These were literally scraps out of the one drawer I have for fabric. They also happen to be the only ones that coordinated.
I just love happy accidents.
1. Make a small cut into fabric about every inch or so. Give or take a half inch.
2. Pull fabric on either side of cut, tearing strips.
3. If you want a balanced rag bunting and you don’t have an equal number of fabric strips in each fabric, lay out fabric to find a nice balance.
4. Tie jute or hemp cord/string to a chair. Tie other end (I always leave it attached to the ball/roll until I’ve finished so I can judge the length then) to another chair. This step makes it so much easier to do step 5.
5. Starting on one end, tie fabric to cord/string in a simple knot. Repeat for all fabric strips.
Then simply fluff, hang and enjoy!
