Very cute!!!

I love your idea and used it to make a birthday banner for my son. Check it at my blog.

It's funny how a simple directive can inspire such confidence: "cut recklessly." Haha, I did! Now, instead of neatly folded fabric collecting dust, I've worked up the nerve and cut them all into triangles! Tomorrow will be pinning, then Thursday is a sewing day. I can't wait to surprise my soon-to-be 5 year old with this lovely bunting at her tea party birthday party.

A question you open the binding and sew one side to each flag, then fold over and topstitch, or just fold it over both sides of the flag, pin, and catch both sides of the binding in one shot?

Thanks so much for a great tutorial!!!

I just used this tutorial to make a rainbow birthday bunting for my daughter's rainbow themed party. I posted a picture on my blog today. Just wanted to say thanks for doing the tutorial!

This is the most awesome tutorial ever. I am totally late to the bunting party - I just made my first bunting tonight - in under an hour. Thanks for the permission to "cut recklessly"-- I love it!!

This blog is wonderful, really nice!!! , i stay impressive with the whole information here. I really like know about everything because i usually like to answer very well when a person ask me something. I Think the most important thing is to know about several information, and you look smarter all the time.

Thank You for your helpful tutorial :) I was able to make one for my daughters birthday tea party!! I ended up not sewing my individual flags but bought double sided iron on interfacing. You pop the iron on stuff in between the folded pieces of fabric, iron & then cut as usual. This eliminates using the starch and saves time on sewing. I only had to sew the flags into my binding at the end :)I used 4 different fabrics which made a 4 meter banner it only took me about 1hr 30 mins from start to finish to complete :) Will definitely be making more of these!!

This really is an wonderful written write-up, Thanks for yet a different insightful post, as consistently!

Thank you for the tutorial and for making it easy. I'm making one of these for a baby shower this weekend and I hope to use it for Easter also.

Just found you in googling birthday banners - and I love it! So far we've got a purple one underway, with three others in the making. Everyone is getting a special banner this year ... an 80th great grandma, a 90th birthday, and even my 7yo. Thanks for making putting it together so simple!
