fabric bunting

I'm loving the insta-festivity that garlands/buntings/flags/banners/whatever you want to call them add to a space without going over-the-top, particularly in kids' bedrooms and/or playrooms.

As a girl who likes to dabble in sewing, I have a few fabric scraps and remnants on-hand, so I thought this project would be right up my alley (translation: cute. and also: cheap). Because I still haven't exactly figured out the color scheme for the nursery, I decided to keep the flags feminine and fairly light but also diverse.

I made up my triangle pattern and cut out a bunch of scraps in that shape. Then I used the pattern to also cut out triangle iron-on interfacing and ironed them together. This will make each flag hang much more nicely than an un-lined piece of fabric. (This also made it possible to NOT have to sew the edges of each triangle; however, if I were making a two-sided bunting I would've bypassed the interfacing step.)

After interfacing was attached to each triangle, I trimmed all edges with pinking shears and sewed 'em right onto a stream of grosgrain ribbon (I imagine you could even use fabric glue for that step to create yo'self a completely-no-sew project). I couldn't love how this turned out any more than I do. It adds visual interest to almost a whole wall and brings in some great color. (Recognize that circle paint chip mobile?)

Plus, hello, free. Yeehaw. Does anyone else find their creativity juices enhanced by budget constraints? This is becoming highly addictive and fun for me.

Once again: my older girls want one of these in their room. I'm sensing a trend here...
