I have some girlie fabric that I bought while dd was small, I was going to make cot bed duvet covers while she was still in the cot bed but I put it away and forgot I had it!
Just thinking of making some fabric bunting for her bedroom. Where is the best place to get templates/ideas on how to make it. I'm not the best sewer but would be able for something as basic as this.

Sandwich the fabric between double sided iron on Vilene. This will make the fabric stiffer and help prevent fraying. Make sure the right sides are on the outside, I know this seems obvious. Cut out triangles using either sharp dressmaking scissors or pinking shears. Then either sew on to ribbon or folded over bias binding, at regular intervals.

Thank you!! Only seeing this now but thanks again, at least I have some sort of idea on how to get started. I'd get Vilene in a fabric shop obviously? Could I use light card?

Vilene or any iron on fabric stiffener will work, card not really advisable.
