Red, White, & Blue

Happy Fourth of July readers!
 To show our spirit, I made this cute, patriotic banner for our family picnic. Take a look!

To start off, I placed all my pieces out to create a pattern & pinned them.
A good rule of thumb for a pretty banner is that you should only use 3-4 fabric patterns when
using multiple colors. 

I stitched the banner together once & then a second time with double folded bias tape.

For a half hours worth of time, I was able to add a cute touch to our little tent:)

The only thing I wish was that I made a couple more. I love the patterns & how they look together. We started our celebration a day early.... It's two days of lounging with family, friends, & tasty food. Could you blame us?
Hope everyone has a fun, safe, & happy holiday filled with good company, great laughs,
& bright fireworks:)
Happy Trails!
