Quick and Easy Patchwork Bunting DIY Instructions
Bunting, plus ….. A Matching Set of Accessories
Let’s round out the décor on your porch. Patchwork fabric is sold by the yard, you can buy a couple of yard to make some matching pillow covers for your garden seating area, and a picnic blanket for your lawn or chilly eve’s on the porch. Free sewing patterns are below.
Consider using contrast fabrics for backs and details of the bunting and associated garden furniture items that you’ll fabricate. As per my usual recommendations, first use up what you have in your fabric stash. If you don’t have anything suitable, consider getting a few yards of matching, inexpensive fabrics.
And btw. I like these combination of colors and fabrics also for a boy’s bedroom, don’t you? This pre-sewn patchwork fabric makes a beautiful quilted bedspread without the usually associated ‘year’ of labor.
