Sew fabric lanterns and group them together to create a colourful display.
1 Choose a variety of prints in different colours to make a bold statement.
2 Cut a strip of fabric approximately 30cm long by 55cm wide.
3 With the right sides facing, sew the side seam together so the strip forms a tube shape.
4 Now fold a narrow casing along the top and bottom edges and topstitch in place.
5 Insert a strip of wire into the top and bottom casing and bend it to form a neat circle.
6 Cut two 50cm-long strips of ribbon in a contrasting colour.
7 Divide the top circle in quarter sections and mark each section with a dressmaking pin.
8 Sew the ends of the ribbon securely at the markers so the lantern can hang.
