Hi Friends, How are you today? I hope well.
I made these fun Patriotic Red White & Blue Flag banners today for a fun 4th of July beach party we are going to with friends.
It’s going to be such a fun day and our friends live in Irvine and near a Lagoon with a great pool area and we’re all bringing lots of goodies to eat and barbecue and snack on and share (and drink too…lol). Super excited to enjoy the day with them!
I knew I had a bunch of scrap fabric in my fabric stash and so I told my girlfriend I’d whip up some banners that we can hang around, from chairs, fences, tables etc.
I love LOVE LoVe flag banners because they are so festive and add a lot of color and fun to any area and are great for parties and birthdays too.
Here they are hanging from our greenery behind our patio chairs we just spray painted too.
Here’s how it all started. I had these fabrics in my stash and the patchwork was a skirt too.
I just cut out a triangle and then cut out lots of triangles in each color.
Here are my piles of triangles. I love to use pinking shears so the edges are more finished and don’t ravel.
Then I cut the selvage edge off the flag fabric to use as the ribbon ties.
I pinned my triangles on like this and I found one piece of red bias tape so I used that too.
Then I sewed the triangles on and just took my time but it went pretty quickly. Then I folded it over and zig zag stitched it so it looked more finished.
Banners are so fun and easy to make and look how festive!
