Scrap Fabric Rag Bunting | Trash to Treasure

Oh how I love cheap and easy!

Cheap and easy projects of course!

Case in point, this adorable rag bunting was made entirely of scrap pieces of fabric I already had in my sewing drawer. And let me assure you I do not have a large stash. These were literally scraps out of the one drawer I have for fabric. They also happen to be the only ones that coordinated.

SCRAP FABRIC RAG BUNTING AKA DESIGN

I just love happy accidents.

I also love that my brain actually remembered that I had to create something from nothing (well virtually nothing) for this month’s Trash to Treasure. I will forgive it for not remembering until yesterday afternoon. The important thing is I remembered. And I came up with something. I’m sure these lovely ladies appreciate it! ;)

Supplies:

RAG BUNTING SUPPLIES | WWW.AKADESIGN.CA

  • scrap fabric
  • scissors
  • jute or hemp string/cord

Instructions:

rag bunting step 1 cut

1. Make a small cut into fabric about every inch or so. Give or take a half inch.

fabric scraps

2. Pull fabric on either side of cut, tearing strips.

RAG BUNTING LAID OUT

3. If you want a balanced rag bunting and you don’t have an equal number of fabric strips in each fabric, lay out fabric to find a nice balance.

4. Tie jute or hemp cord/string to a chair. Tie other end (I always leave it attached to the ball/roll until I’ve finished so I can judge the length then) to another chair. This step makes it so much easier to do step 5.

RAG BUNTING IN PROGRESS

5. Starting on one end, tie fabric to cord/string in a simple knot. Repeat for all fabric strips.
