Super Simple 4th of July Banner

RED--WHITE-- BLUE!  I was going through all my stuff I noticed that I didn't have a lot of patriotic decorations... So I decided to make a simple-cute patriotic banner.

Supplies needed:

  • 2 yards (total) of different 4th of July fabrics
  • White Buttons
  • Card stock--- to make your triangle pattern.
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors
  • Thread

Make a triangle pattern with your card stock. I tracked the pattern on the fabric (I had two different types of fabrics)

I had a ton of scraps... and I  HATE wasting  scraps.... So I cut out squares and stars...

And sewed them together and made a fun garland for my table.

Sew two triangles right ride together. Flipp them right ride out and iron. Then give the triangle a top stick. Iron again.

Once each "flag" is completed. Take your assortment of cute buttons and sew.. hot glue.. hand sew.. whatever you want to do.. ATTACH the corners of each flag together with a button. 

 Ta-Da!! You now have a very cute Memorial Day/4th of July Banner!
