Patriotic Rag Banner

I like to decorate my space at the shop for the different holidays so this year instead of using regular flag bunting I decided to make my own patriotic banners.  These are two-sided so they would look good in the window from both sides.  Pardon my ice tea.  I didn't realize it was sitting there until I got home and looked at the photos.

 I had the red mattress ticking already as well as the upholstery cord.

 I purchased a banner for a dollar at the local craft store and used it for my pattern.  I cut the ticking so it would make a double flag.
 I used Tacky Glue and spread it in the middle of the ticking fabric and folded it over on the cording.  Then I cut four different fabrics in 12 x 1 inch strips and tied each strip onto the cord.  It dressed up my windows and added a little color.  This was a super easy project and also a no sew.  Thanks for paying me a visit.

I am really loving that bunting. The red ticking is always good for whatever you need in a pinch. Great idea Maggie. Glad you showed us. I'll be making that for July 4th. Making things like that are easy and fun. Hope you and yours had a great holiday weekend.

Fabulous bunting. Did you see the bunting on our blog a few days ago? I bet you like that one too. I love this pre-sewn patchwork fabric.. but now I am getting off topic here...
