A Handmade Holiday 2013 — Holiday Bunting


There’s nothing like a great bunting or garland to add a little oomph to your home décor. It’s a great way to infuse some color, or highlight a fabric line that you just adore. Kara Sanders of Me and Elna has put together a super simple bunting tutorial using fabrics from Kate Spain‘s In From the Cold. I want one for my mantle! It would look fabulous as a backdrop to the family stockings and is just cute enough to earn a mantle spot for the whole Winter season! Change up the fabrics and you’ve got a fun decoration for the dining room, or maybe a child’s room. Happy sewing!

KaraSandersKara grew up in a household full of creativity, music and laughter. Though she was the resident needle threader for her mother throughout her childhood, Kara didn’t begin to sew until 2008 when she went to a quilt festival and picked up Pat Sloan’s “I Can’t Believe I’m Sewing!”  Since then, she has been hooked! Kara loves designing and making handmade gifts for her family and friends and finds much encouragement and support from others in the online sewing community.
