A Party in a box! The items crafted up in this tutorial are easily customized for any event - Birthdays, GAME day, Baby Shower, Holidays, different seasons, etc.
Making the Banner:
Position, trace and cut the triangle shapes with all the different fabrics. You will need (11 triangles for 3 yds of bias tape if using the same size of template). Sew around 2 sides of each triangle piece stitching ¼” inside of the pattern line.
Once all the triangles are cut, it’s time start stringing them together! Starting about 8" in, place the triangles in between the two layers of the bias tape and pin in place. This allows enough space to have room to tie the banner if necessary.
Repeat until you reach the end the opposite end, again leaving about 8”. You can choose to create a pattern of colors or have no pattern at all! Your triangles can also be overlapped slightly, placed end to end, or have a bit of space in between. The design is up to you! (*for this project we place our triangles end to end)Once all the triangles have been placed and pinned, sew down the entire length of the bias tape securing all the pieces in place.
You are finished! Find a fun container, fabric box, etc to store it in and we will be adding more to it! Then all of your fun party decor will neatly be stashed away in the one place.
Extra options: Add felt letters to spell out an event phrase (i.e. Happy Birthday!, Baby Shower, Go Team, Autumn, etc). The letters could be ironed or glued on. Another option is to stencil the letters on with paint. Get creative! Just be sure you have enough triangles for the letters you need. :)
If you want to make your banner longer, simply sew another strand of bias tape to one end and continue. If you want to make the banner shorter, cut the bias tape to the desired length.
next TUESDAY......we will create another item to for our "party box!"
