How to Make Victorian Tailor 4th of July Fringe Bunting

July 1, 2015

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                            You will need:  cotton calico, macramae                                             or heavy  cord, ruler, scissors,

                                                                     

                          Decide how long you want your bunting cord to be,

                 mine is 15 feet,  I want my calico strips to be 4 inches wide.                                                                  

                                                                

                  How long do you want the calico fringe to hang?

            Mine is 15 inches long, So you have to double that                       number to 30 inches because then I am folding the strip                                                    in half,

 

            So now fold your strip in half and lay behind the cord

            Take a hold of the top of the fold, pull it forward and

       open it up to make a loop to push the tail of the strip                                              through, 

 

 

 

                                                      

 

                                                Pull the strip through and onto the cord, 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                             Now pull on the tail until you have                                     locked the strip in place,

                         Keep adding your 4 inch strips until you                           have the desired amount of length and                             fullness you like to your bunting
