Try Hobbycraft for your supplies.
Step 1: Draw a triangle on some cardboard and cut it out to use as a bunting template.
Step 2: Pin the template to your fabric and cut around it using pinking shears to avoid fraying. Repeat until you have enough flags for your desired bunting lenght.
Step 3: Evenly space the flags along the bias binding tape, folding the shortest edge over, and pin in place securely ready to sew in place.
Step 4: Sew on the flags with a straight stitch, leaving at least 40cm of tape free from flags at each end for hanging your bunting proudly on display.
