 Now, onto getting your 4th of July on!

 Wa-hoo!  Have you been getting into the spirit of the holiday with patriotic crafts?  I did! I created a quick and easy patriotic bunting but I used red, white, and blue in a more subtle way. This way, it doesn't scream "FLAG!" and I can use it throughout the summer!

I selected fabrics my fabrics and created a triangle template from cardboard. Then I traced each piece and cut each pennant with pinking shears. 
I cut a long strip of fabric about an inch wide. I folded 1/2 " in on each side and pressed it down.

Then I folded it longways in the middle and pressed it again.

I pinned each triangle inside the fold of the fabric strip and then ran it straight through my sewing machine. It was that easy!

I love that it is red, white, and blue...festive!

I purchased these fabrics for this bunting project but wouldn't this be a great way to get rid of some scrap fabric?
