Mini Bunting

This book was one of our "party favors" at the closing dinner of Sewing Summit. It has a lot of really cute and creative ways to wrap gifts using fabric or paper.


The one that caught my eye was this cute mini bunting (garland).

I grabbed a charm pack of Aneela Hoey's Cherry Christmas and made the garland in about an hour. I cut each charm in half and then folded each strip into a 2-1/2" square. Using my new pinking shears that I bought with my 60% off JoAnn's coupon, I cut each square into a triangle then followed the directions in the book for attaching the fabric to the twine. (Thanks to Jennifer Ellison Lane Quilts for the twine from last year's Sewing Summit dinner swag bag).

New pinking shears

I used 26 of the charms, cut in half. I might make another strand with the rest. This piece is about 12'long. I even set up a mini photo shoot on one of my mini trees. I can't believe in just a few short weeks we will be bringing out all the Christmas decorations.

Isn't it cute?
