I’ve been working on some things for my gallery wall – and I am so excited to show off my latest addition – this Sweet Vintage Sheet Bunting!
Isn’t it so fun? I love all the soft colors and the little scallops!
It is super easy to put together too – and I think it goes so well with my little Home Sweet Home Hoop Art!
So let’s get started on the tutorial k?
- Assorted Vintage Sheets or fabrics
- Fusible Fleece
- Twill tape or bias tape for top edging
- Embroidery floss
- Bunting Pattern

Start by cutting out all your bunting and fusible fleece pieces. I used 12 scallops, but you can use as many or as few as you’d like. You will want to cut 2 fabric pieces and 1 fusible fleece piece per scallop.
Iron your fusible fleece onto the wrong side of one of the scallop pieces for each set.
Place the pieces right side together and sew around the sides and bottom. Leave the top open for turning. Clip the curve really well and turn right side out and press.
Thread a needle with 2 strands of embroidery floss. Sew a running stitch about 1/4″ inside the sewn seam around the sides and bottom.
Repeat for all your other little scallops.
Start with a long strip of twill tape or binding. Here’s a little “how to” for finishing off the end of your tape.
1. Fold the two ends in at an angle to make a little triangle.
2. Fold the little triangle down onto the tape.
3. Fold the tape in half, with the triangle ends tucked in.
4. Now you have a clean little edge to your tape!
Once your end is sewn, sew the tape together to give yourself a little room to tie or fasten your bunting. Mine has a little strip on each end of about 12″.
Place the raw, open end of the bunting onto the tape and fold the tape around it. Sew along the edge, adding bunting pieces as you go. Make sure the space between each bunting is the same.
Finish your twill tape the same way as the beginning – and now you have a super cute little bunting – all full of pretty little scalloped fabric pieces.
So fun right?
Hang it up with some pretty frames and artwork – and then plan to make up some more!
I’d love to know what you think!!
