This timeless heart bunting provides the perfect way to add gorgeous rustic home decor to bedrooms, kitchen dressers, garden parties and more.

Heart Bunting Tutorial:

Step 1:

To begin, fuse your fusible webbing to the wrong sides of your fabric, then cut out 16 heart shapes.

Step 2:

Next, cut your hessian into eight 6” x 12” strips. Fold each in half, and press.

Step 3:

Place your bunting template over the folded hessian, and cut.

Step 4:

Peel the paper backing from the hearts and iron over the hessian pennants, 1” from the points. Make sure the hearts are mirror-imaged so that they are the same way around when the pennant is folded.

Step 5:

Although you could just leave the hearts as they are, as the fusible webbing is a secure adhesive, I’ve chosen to outline my hearts with free motion stitches. You could use a decorative or satin stitch instead, if you wish.

Step 6:

Use a zigzag stitch around the edge of the hessian to help stop fraying, and repeat with all eight pennants.

Step 7:

Fold the hessian pennants around the cord, spacing evenly. Hold these in place with fabric glue if you wish. Next, sew around each pennant, under the cord, then around the edges through both sides of the fabric.

Step 8:
