I had some left over fabric from some St. Patrick’s Day no sew hand towels I made. I am lacking in my decorations this year so I decided to make a St. Patrick’s Day Fabric Scrap and Burlap Scrap Bunting. My leftovers were the perfect amount.
I had made a banner similar to this one for a Vintage Themed Baby Shower I did. You can see the full tutorial for it there. These two fabric quarters were perfect for making a hand towel and this bunting. Score! So cheap (less than $5 for both)!
Anyway, the difference between this bunting and the scrap fabric bunting I made for the baby shower was this…
I used this awesome Fiskars Rotary Cutter and Ruler that pretty much cut my time in half when making this! It was so ah-mazing and cut the lines perfectly clean. All you need is the cutter and a cutting mat and with one swipe you have a perfectly straight line. No need for scissors! Oh… and so much easier to use this when cutting the burlap as well. I highly recommend it if you couldn’t tell.
I cut my strips of fabric and burlap and then knotted them to some rope I had left over as well from these nautical inspired thrift store rope vases I made. I altered the two patterns and a burlap strip.
I love the mix of fabric and burlap. As you may or may not know, crafting with burlap is messy! Make sure you have your garbage can handy!
