Fabric Scrap Banner Tutorial




I have made many banners in my days and I have to say this scrap banner is my favorite. I love how it fills the back ground with texture and dimension. It is also great because there doesn't have to be any measuring and or sewing. That's right, NO SEWING and it only takes 3 STEPS.

Supplies

  • Double sided fabric
  • Think string
  • Scissors
  • Your hands :)


You will want double sided fabric.  Most fabrics come with a print on one side and white on the other. This is fine if this is what you are going for, but I personally like my fabric to be the same on both sides.

For the banner you see above I chose 7 different prints and I purchased a half a yard of each print. 

STEP 1:

Cut slits into the fabric. Using your hands, tear off each strip of fabric. I cut my strips about 2 inches each. This is what is so great is you don't have to be perfect, and all the sizes can be different.


STEP 2:

Loop the fabric strip over your string.


STEP 3:

Pull the two ends through the loop and pull tight!

  2. I did this for my sons' joint train party last fall, except I did it with random fabrics purchased from different thrift stores. VERY inexpensive and everyone loved all of the banners. I mixed it up and did pennant banners along with this type banner and they were precious! LOVE this idea and will continue to do it for many parties to come!
