Fabric glue bunting

It really is no secret that I’m not that into sewing. It’s something I aspire to take up in a big way, hopefully in the near future. In the meantime, anything no-sew is a win, especially if it means three-year-old Talitha can join in.

This month, Bostik sent us their Sew Simple fabric glue, along with some fun bits and pieces from Craft Merrily to try our hand something for the Bostik Family Craft Bloggers Network challenge. We decided to make bunting.

We took a piece of leftover curtain from Talitha’s room, we took turns using a glass to trace circles on it and I cut them out with pinking shears.

I traced the butterflies using a cookie cutter on felt and cut them out as it was a bit of a fiddly job. Talitha stuck the butterflies and buttons on and I helped her attach the circles to a piece of twine. Then we mounted the bunting to her bedroom door, which she’s pleased about.

    Well…for ages, I’ve been collecting beautifully patterned cotton scarves from places like Sainsbury’s and Tesco, with the intention of making some sail-like decorations for my daughter’s room using dowel at each end to create tension, so I’d probably use the fabric glue for that. Nice work on the bunting, looks pretty!

    I’m very much a fan of fabric glue! My friend introduced it to me when I used to make felt toys and it forever to sew each little decoration on! x

    Gorgeous bunting! I love that you could do it together. I adore anything that means I can skip sewing!

    I do like using my sewing machine but I’ve been way too busy to use it recently and i love the sound of fabric glue. Also pinking shears are sooo useful when you don’t want to hem anything. Cute bunting!

    Lately I have become huge fan of simple toddler crafts – that can actually be made by toddlers and have such wonderful results such as your lovely bunting – might try and make this for the little mans birthday if I have time – simple crafting – love it
