Good Morning, Quilters!
My grandson is about to move from his crib to a “Big Bed” and a new bedroom.
The perfect excuse for me to pull out some fun fabrics and make a bunting to decorate his new digs.
I happened to have the perfect ruler for the job…(I have the perfect ruler for almost every job–I’m a sucker for rulers!)
You don’t need this ruler to create the pennant…just draw a triangle or use the 45 degree line on a regular ruler.
I used fat quarters of fabric-and made each triangle 9 inches from tip to base.
The trick to pointed triangles…sew 2-3 stitches straight across the tip (blunting the point)–do not stitch to the point.
Then trim the seam allowances around the point–the tip and the sides.
Press the seam allowances open over a sleeve roll or Tailors board or a tightly wound towel.
This makes everything lay flatter once the pennants are turned.
The perfect point!
I made double fold tape (not bias) and zig zagged the pennants onto a long strip.
Once you get started…you won’t want to stop…
I think I’ll make one for my sewing room!
Feels like a party!
What about YOU? Have YOU stitched any quick and easy projects lately?
We’d LOVE to hear…and please share a link if you have one!
