My sister-in-law Marcie inspired this cheery little project (She wanted to make one for her home).  This January has been so dreary… I think I’m craving a bit of color to brighten up my house.  A Valentine Bunting seemed like the perfect thing.  And it project uses fairly small pieces of fabric and can be made of scraps, making it inexpensive too.

Like most of my favorite projects, this project is very easy and fast.  (This would be a great project for a beginner.)

To make a Valentine Bunting (or any occasion bunting really) you will need:

    * 8″ x 10″ squares for each flag
    * 1/2 yard of inexpensive muslin for the back of the flags (if you cut carefully you will have left over fabric.)
    * 1/4 yard of fabric for binding (or 2″ wide x 88″ piece of ribbon folded if you wish)
    * freezer paper
    * ruler and rotary cutter or scissors

There are too many steps and photos to add here, but I posted a step-by-step tutorial for anyone who is interested Click here: http://makeitdo.wordpress.com/2010/01/22/valentines-flags/

Charming! I'm going to make one for my cubicle. (Yeah! I have a new job!)

You could make a reversible bunting if you used another holiday fabric on the "back" Grin

So cute and Valentiney festive!  I really really like it, and I also like Scot Skipper's idea of making it reversible... thanks for the inspiration.


Smile like you mean it, and let yourself let go.
