Garden Party with Canvas Corp

Garden Party with CC – Bunting and Pot Holders

Our Canvas Corp Home Decor Designer, Angela Harkness is back with the second set of projects for her Garden Party. This time she has for you a bunting and a set of pot holders. Next week, she will be sharing three different cushion covers to complement the deco.

The Garden Party projects are all designed to work together to decorate the garden for a special occasion or a traditional English Afternoon Tea. The projects have been made specifically for my own garden, but obviously you can adapt for your own set-up. The quick and easy bunting will bring a touch of shabby-chic to your garden.

With the fabric strips wrong sides together, sew along each side of the drawn line to give the triangles a seam on each of the diagonal sides.

Fold the burlap fringe in half along the length of the strip. Position the pennants centrally along the fold line and pin in place. Leave a gap between each pennant for the bunting to drape well.
