How to make:
Step 1: Arrange your fat quarters in the colour order of your choice. ready to use. If desired, give the fabric a quick iron.
Step 2: Keep your fabric folded, and measuring 22cm down from the fold, you'll need to cut strips 3cm wide. If it helps create a paper rectangle 4cm wide to use as a cutting guide. Repeat for all the other fabric pieces.
Step 3: Taking a strip, open it up to its full 22cm length. Fold the strip in on it's longest side (as shown in picture 4) repeat for the second strip. Tie your two strips together using a double knot, leaving some length in the two tails (as shown).
Step 4: To decorate the bunting further, add more tied fabric as before, between the original knots. Use the same patterned fabric strips to match the bunting strips when tying on these additional knots.
Step 5: Remove the smallest Pom-Pom maker from the kit. Follow the instructions to begin making a Pom-Pom, using the orange yarn. Leave the two strands of tying yarn attached.
Step 6: When a few orange Pom-Poms have been made, begin tying them onto the bunting. Use a darning needle to thread one of the Pom-Pom tying yarns through the fabric knots. Only use every other fabric knot with the two different patterned fabric tied together. Secure each Pom-Pom in place with triple knot. Trim off the excess yarn.
Step 7: Now the knotted fabric Pom-Pom bunting is ready to hang up and enjoy!
