day 6: scraps of vintage fabric

This morning I wanted to be creative and just play for a bit.  I have a bin full of vintage pillowcase, tablecloth and fabric scrapes that I have always wanted to do something with.  Lately the pennant flag banners have been everywhere and I love those, so I thought why not make one with the vintage scrapes.

I drew a simple triangular shape and started cutting the scrapes, picking some of my favorite little bits.

cutting, cutting, cutting

About an hour of sewing, and I had a pile of pennant flags and decided the perfect thing to make them into a banner would be some vintage seam binding.  A few moments later and this is what I have.

Cute! It is the starting point of my booth display, not sure what else will be going into my display or even how I am going to display my stuff but I am starting to get a blurry vision of what it will look like.  I will share that adventure soon!


Maybe I should make more of these to sell at the show too, what do you thing?
