Last year, I made colorful bunting out of scrapbook paper to brighten my front porch and backyard. Unbeknownst to me at the time, laminated scrapbook paper was a dumb choice for my project because water seeped between the lamination and slowly ruined my bunting. So, defeated, I took it all down before winter last year knowing that I would come up with something even better to replace it. Sure enough a few months later while cleaning out craft supplies I was struck with a great idea for my fabric scraps. As a fabric shopaholic I am often left with fabric scraps too small for a whole project but too big to decidedly throw away. Case in point:
With this mismatched bunch of scraps I knew I could create some colorful, fun bunting to decorate my house for summer. Read on to see how I transformed my useless fabric scraps into something beautiful!
First, I made a triangle template and cut as many triangles from my fabric pieces as possible.
To make each little flag I chose two triangles, placed the pretty sides of the fabric toward each other, and sewed up the sides leaving the top open. Then I turned them right side out and arranged them in a line aesthetically.
