2-in-1 Christmas & Kids Bunting

Inspired by the Scalloped Fabric Garland [tutorial], I decided to sew my own version. I wanted mine to be reversible with a Christmas theme on one side, and a kid’s party theme on the other.

I made this especially for my mother-in-law to use all year around. She LOVES Christmas and her only grandson. She has a spare room decorated just for him whenever he sleeps over. I thought she could hang it above the little boy’s bed when Christmas is over.

It was really fun and quick to make. The tutorial and template from Jessie is clear and easy to follow. The only mistake was I used a thinner bias tape and even though it looks good from a distance, I had to re-sew over the garland with wide zig zags as some of the fabric came loose from the tape.

I loved making the bunting so much that I whipped up another one the next day! I took ideas from the scalloped garland and Purl Bee’s Party Garland [tutorial] to create a shimmery Christmas Bunting.
