Todays project is a NO-SEW Chalk Cloth Bunting! Even those of us that have been sewing for (WAY to many) decades love a good no-sew project. With just a few tools and a little chalk and oilcloth you can make a cool banner that you will use at all of your parties and celebrations for years to come! I hope you enjoyed making it as much as I did!
The number of banner pieces you will need depends on your desired greeting, think Birthdays, Graduations, and Barbecues!
stuff you gotta have:
step one. Cut chalk cloth 6" by 8" and oilcloth slightly larger at 6 1/4" by 8". By doing so you get a peak of the back side of the oilcloth--it hints that there is something fun to be seen from the back too.
step 2. Once you have all your pieces cut out clip them together.
step 3. Use white colored pencil to mark your cutting line. Careful not to clip to close to the edge.
step 4. Fold both layers of fabric and clip.
step 5. You're now ready to string the ribbon through the slits. I like wrapping the end of the ribbon with a piece of tape to make this easier to work with, think flat shoe lace tips. Alternate the look by sliding the ribbon in from the top and then on the next piece come up from the bottom.
step 6. Now you are ready to chalk it up!
It should say Happy Summer!
Everyone wants a pretty backside!
