I could tell from your comments that many of you are anxious to see the inside of my refurbished vegetable bin. Unfortunately, I'm not able to share it with you until my Studios magazine article is published this fall. However, I can give you a peek at something I made to make the bin a little more festive — an itty-bitty pennant banner.
Isn't it darling? Pennant banners like these are so easy to make. All you need is fabric, rick-rack trim, a sewing machine and an iron.
At Walmart, I purchased a cotton floral mini-print and a roll of tiny rick-rack. First, I cut an isosceles triangle out of poster board to use as a pattern. It has two equal sides measuring 3.5 inches long and the top measures 3.25 inches.
Using the pattern, I cut two triangles for each pennant out of the fabric. Then with the right sides together, I machine sewed along the longer sides, leaving the top open. Next, I turned them right-side-out and ironed them flat.
Lastly, using green thread, I machine sewed the rick-rack to the top edge of each little pennant.
And that's all there is to it! Super simple — and super charming, too.
