I've been looking for ways to accessorize and jazz up my booth for the next Magnolia Market and this fabric banner was the perfect solution - so easy and quick.
There's a little bit of a banner obsession going on over here now. My cousin will be getting one for her *amazing* new treehouse. My daughter will be getting one for her room. Found some vintage-y fabric for a (eeks, yes, I'm going there already) Christmas banner. Is a Spiderman banner going too far? Straight up banner addiction has me thinking fuzzy.
Here are step-by-steps, but if you want me to whip one up for you just email me.
For this project you will need:
disappearing ink pen
various fabrics (about 1/2 yard total)
extra wide double fold bias tape (Wright's PC206)
Start off by making a template for your banner "flags". The size and shape are completely up to you! I used traditional triangle, but rectangular or even semi-circle flags would be darling. Once you have your template, select fabrics and trace using the disappearing ink pen. The bias tape comes 3 yards in length, so depending on the width of your flags you can take a rough measurement for how many you'll need. Cut using pinking shears - this prevents the fabric from fraying and also adds a fun edge.
I didn't take much time to measure the distance between each flag. Just eye-balled it to about 1-1.5 inch between each. Lay each new flag between the folds of the bias tape and sew.
I love all the quirky patterns and colors!
