Patriotic Bunting
I have seen so many flag bunting in blog land that I just could stand it any longer! With July 4th almost here I thought I needed to get in gear. Plus my kids enjoy it when I decorate the house. Also did I mention my sister is visiting today. Oh my goodness! I've go to get cleaning! OK back to the bunting. I went to a really nice fabric shop that sells mostly quilting supplies. Love Love fabric! I've been known to purchase fabric just because. It's the same addiction to scrapbook paper. Well I found a hand full of fat quarters in red, white, and blue. Don't ya just love it!
Next I cut them in a triangles and sewed them inside out together. If you have a rotary fabric cutter it makes things go much faster!
Then I turned them right side out and gave them a good press. I connected the triangles together using bias tape. I used the extra wide double fold. The little triangles fit sandwiched together inside the fold just perfect. This was you don't have to finish the top of the triangle. (less work!) I made and extra one for my sister but don't tell her! Thanks for stopping by. I'm linking to: Sip to my Lou -Made by you Monday

Thanks, I love it too. It was easy to make too. Fireworks are banned here too. We haven't had much rain in months. We are 10 inches of rain behind. Also there are three fires burning in NC. One is in a neighboring county and the snoke has been around and causing lots of problems.
