Let's get started!
The first thing I made with my new Silhouette machine was this printed canvas bunting! I downloaded 2 different bunting graphics from the Silhouette online store and had the machine cut out the designs on vinyl:
I placed the vinyl cutout onto a basic screen. The bunting is a positive image so I had to cut a few pieces of vinyl to create an outline around it:
I used a large canvas tablecloth for my fabric. First I did a row of charcoal colored flags in one design:
Then I did a second design in hot pink:
I was tempted to silk screen the entire table cloth with this print and leave it at that!
I cut out each flag:
I left the edges of the flags raw..the ink keeps them from fraying:
I used a 1/4 inch ribbon as the string...
...and sewed each flag to it along the top:
So festive! An easy way to decorate for a party or just spruce up a room or table:
