Christmas Bunting

Using tea dyed cotton muslin, embroidering then sewing the perfect outline in the hoop, turning inside out for aged and primitive looking bunting flags. At the request of many of you ladies, I have added the whole alphabet, so that you wont be limited to just, MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY CHRISTMAS, with a few Christmas images to add to the flags.
A 5x7 hoop is needed as each finished flag is 5.03" x 6.98".

Start with dyeing your cotton fabric,  two to three  yards, depending on the width. Drop it dry into a large saucepan with at least 8 teabags and 6-8 pints of water. Add a teaspoon of salt, this sets the colour. boil until you are happy with the depth of colour, don't worry if it is blotchy, that makes it look more authentic

Hoop your tea stained cotton, I prefer iron on stabilizer



Sew the design or letter of choic


Place another piece of tea dyed cotton on top of embroidered design or letter.


Sew the outline


Remove from hoop, trim around the sewn outline. Turn inside out so that the right side shows, and iron flat.

Sew or fuse ribbon or cord to the top.
