Ruffled Spring Banner

Hi everyone, Amylove here. I fell in love with this fabric before I even got it into my hands! I knew that I wanted to make this ruffled pennant banner to hang in my craft room. The colors are so soft and coordinate so well, as do all of the Love My Fabrics bundles. I began with canvas pennants I bought at Hobby Lobby. Then I folded back about about a 1/2" of the canvas to make a place to hold the seam binding.

Then I used this beautiful trim to layer in between the layers of fabric. I just hot glued it on.

Then I cut the fabric into 1"-1.5" strips and  used a running stitch to make my fabric into ruffles and adhered them to the pennant with hot glue also.

After all of the pennants where complete, I flipped them over and adhered seam binding under the fold. I spaced all of the pennants approximately 1"apart on the seam binding.
I couldn't be happier with the results!!

I really enjoyed making this and it adds the perfect touch to my craft room! This fabric bundle can be purchased here: Cotton Fabric - Lovable - fat quarter bundle - pink roses. Please visit our Etsy shop for all of the beautiful bundles available:  Love My Fabrics.
