Wash out any fabric finish from the bunting before you start decorating. Leave it to dry, then iron to remove any creases. Make sure you have all your materials to hand before you start. The templates are ready to download and print out – easy!
First, place your bunting textile over the template and use the black edding textile pen to trace the outlines of the letters.
Once you’ve transferred all the outlines, use the black edding textile marker to colour them in.
Now you’re ready to add some colour to your flags: To add the decorative embellishments, take the pink edding textile pen and copy them from the template onto the fabric.
Now for the spots: start with a semi-circle using an edding textile pen in a darker shade, followed by the second half in a lighter shade. Use this pen to drag some of the darker colour over into the lighter area.
To set the ink, iron your bunting on the no-steam setting. It will then be able to withstand wash cycles up to 60°C (after all, you never know how wild your next party might get!).
