I've Also Been Doing This...

It isn't as if I had nothing to do; I do. It's simply that I've wanted one of these banners for a couple of years and just got around to doing one. I also wanted it in the theme of my house so I had to make it as I couldn't find any as froufrou as I wanted. This was very, very simple to do. It is just time consuming to make.

First you have to make a triangle the size you want for a pattern and then cut out each piece after you've selected the fabric from your stash—and we all know I have a stash. Then you sew them together. I decided I wanted the triangles to be pinked so I had to do that. Then I finally sewed them onto a length of double blanket binding. This was after a trip to Joanns to buy the binding. Then roses were added between each flag.

This is the back as I was coming out our patio door.

I used 9 flags varying them from roses to plainer fabrics like stripes and polka dots simply because I love the stripes and polka dots also.

Here I used a piece of a vintage Wilendur tablecloth as the center flag.

The fabrics included Laura Ashley, Robyn Pandolph, Lakehouse. House Inc., Yuwa and Mary Rose. All are gorgeous fabrics and favorites of mine.

You can do this. Just get started with the fabrics of your choice. This one is going in the living room.
