a fall banner just for fun
Lately I have felt a pull back to my sewing machine that has sat quietly since early summer. The days and nights have cooled and we are finally experiencing fall like weather. I still have to finish this but in the meantime I wanted a project that I could start and finish quickly.
This is a fun little banner that you can whip out in a flash. I love banners as they can be used for any occassion or just for fun. The fabric or theme is really endless and they make a great little gift. I sent one to my MIL in the package with the baby cardigans, just because.
Here's what I did:.
I used 4 different fabrics (you could use scraps too)
approx 1/4 yard each was enough to make 3 banners.
I cut them into 8 inch squares
folded top of square to create hem of approx 1/2 inch and sew
I didnt sew the sides of the squares just the top to create a casing to feed the twine through.
use a saftey pin or bobby pin to feed twine through
tied ends of twine and hang.
