3 inchy banner

here is a banner that i made using some of the fabulous 3 inchy squares that i have received in some superb swaps. (i stitched a few myself.)

i cut some pretty remnant fabric into 5 by 7 rectangles, and then i machine sewed the inchies onto fabric pieces. originally i was thinking about a plain fabric background, like a linen piece or canvas, but then i decided to go with the floral scraps.

i added some vintage lace for good measure, and used safety pins, ribbon, and seam binding as little hooks to connect the banner pennants, and voila!

banners add a little happy to make any room in the house smile.
have a happy day, friends!
