Sew: diy play stand buntings
Sew your own play stand flag style bunting, pennant style bunting, awning and curtains.
I’ve included patterns down below for 25″ wide play stand buntings.
Each bunting has velcro on the back which makes it super easy to switch up:
For the post office I sewed together 3″ wide x 75″ long strips of red, white and blue to make a swag:
And the theater red velvet curtains are 12 1/2″ w x 17″l each, velcro on one short end and extra velcro tabs 4″ from the bottom to hold the curtains open:
If you’re curious about the making the actual play stand we’ve got you covered.
