You’ve seen bunting patterns before, but you’ve never seen one like these! Creative construction means fewer ends to weave in and scraggly ends on the back will be out of site.

This written pattern with full-color photographs includes instructions to make a square-shaped banner. This banner has a lot going for it, including easy to create pieces and a customizable design that allows you to remove and add characters. Make new messages for any event - you’re only limited by the length of your cord.
