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.
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!
- scrap fabric
- jute or hemp string/cord
1. Make a small cut into fabric about every inch or so. Give or take a half inch.
2. Pull fabric on either side of cut, tearing strips.
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.
5. Starting on one end, tie fabric to cord/string in a simple knot. Repeat for all fabric strips.
Then simply fluff, hang and enjoy!

Do you love banners and buntings as much as I do? Don’t they add such a festive flair to a space?
