I quite simply cut the rectangular swatches into triangles by roughly slicing off the edges. I then used a normal paper hole punch to make holes in the top of the triangle. This worked really well as the holes cut out perfectly and evenly every time! I then simply threaded some twine through the holes of the oilcloth, and threaded them all on to make a nice long line of bunting! This is now hanging up on my bedroom wall 🙂
The great thing about oilcloth is that it’s hard wearing and it doesn’t fray. So you don’t need to use a sewing machine to sew up edges, or to create the holes. The oilcloth cuts perfectly and doesn’t leave any loose threads or fraying. I thought making some bunting was a great solution to use up all my random oilcloth swatches!
