To make this bunting you need to:-
*Find a book that has fairly good quality pages and cute images on both sides of the page.
*Make an appropriately sized cardboard isosceles or equilateral triangle template.
*Hold the triangle up to the light and check the image looks as good on the other side of the page.
*Draw around the triangle with a pencil.
*Carefully cut out the triangle with a paper-cutter, shaving off all the pencil lines.
*Arrange an odd number of triangles (minimum 7) with the most interesting images as the first, last and middle "flags".
*Select a coordinating colour of bias binding and cotton, then sew the triangles with small consistent spaces between them using a sewing machine.
*Turn over the edges to create a loop ready to hang the bunting.
I also plonked the box of bunting on the table during my staff training afternoon and made £46 in the coffee break. I quickly learnt that craft fairs and homemade goods are a very unpredictable means of making money and I've new found respect for people who make their living by making stuff.
And finally, I'll tell you about the one and only "commission" I had from Meg at my staff training. She asked if I could make some bunting for her 8-day old Grandson and said she wanted it made from books named after him. I reached for my iphone, called up Amazon and looked to see if transforming a book into bunting with be worth the time and money. And his name was... Alfie! (of course) the same name Liz called the little boy she lost - I was quite spooked (and emotional making that bunting) and took about 3 times longer over arranging it than I had done with any of the others.
