|The banner flags hanging from the ceiling along with the "Ms" that I've made|
Oh wait! It's still here - it's just fallen by the wayside while the author attempts to run a house, a non-profit foundation and keep her sanity. She's been successful at some, but not all of them.
Several projects have been made, but none have been blogged about because it's hard to sit in front of a computer when that's what you do at work all day (right?!).
Well, here's one that I had to share because it was my own idea (yes, really) and it's so simple, I can't think of any reason not to do it; other than if you 1) don't have a sewing machine, 2) don't care about banner flags, 3) don't have time, 4) have no desire to.
As you know, I love banner flags and create personalized ones for my friend's kid's birthdays. I've made six so far and I'm pretty sure that I've promised another 100 or so to others (I'll get right on it, I promise).
While I love the banner flags, I despise cutting out the triangles! When I came across a package of pre-cut triangles ON CLEARANCE at JoAnn's, I knew I had to do something with them. While they weren't super cheap, they were reasonably priced and worth it.
|$6.97 for 60 flags total (double-sided)|
Here's what I did:
- Sorted them out and placed two different patterned triangles right sides facing each other
- In hindsight, it's probably easier to use two of the same patterns - I just wanted that random, bohemian look

I bought another set and can't wait to make more - it just might be another six to ten months!
