I have lots and lots of little fabric scraps laying around that I just can’t seem to part with. We just moved into a new place and the kids’ rooms needed a little sprucing up.. so I took those scraps and turned them into flag banner window treatments. Now… I only made about 8 flags per window… you can make your banner as long or as short as you want. The size of the triangles depends on you as well.
scraps of fabric
bias tape or ribbon (long enough to go the length of your banner with a little on each end)
seam allowance is up to you.. I used abut a 1/4 inch seam allowance
Now… let’s get down to business…
1. Cut a triangle template from paper… just slightly bigger than what you want your finished flags to be.
2. Cut several triangles from fabric… you need fabric on the front and back on the flag…. so if you want 8 flags, you need 16 triangles.You can do the same fabric on both sides or different… it’s up to you.
You can do so much with these banners… you can use random fabrics, themed fabrics, etc. The possibilities are endless. And really… this is such an easy project and a great way to use up old scraps and brighten a room!
