Whimsy Banner Tutorial

im000057Make this easy banner in a couple of hours. On a piece of paper draw out a triangle the size you want the finished product to look like. Then add and inch around the edge of the triangle for seam allowance.

Cut out the triangle and use it for your pattern. I wanted 10 triangle so I cut out 20 pieces. I chose 2 different fabrics so the banner could be reversed.

Sew the two even sides, right sides facing in together. Leave the top of the triangle open. Now turn the triangles right sides out.

Now Sew the tops of the triangles. As one was being finished I would push the next triangle through. The triangles all should be attached together.

I used Double Fold Bias Tape, Quilt Binding to use for the edging. Start with one end and put a finish edge on the edge of the binding.
