Look what I made!
I've been mulling over how to liven up the SoNo MarketPlace stall shown in my last post. This rustic, raw space has a stained concrete floor, rough-hewn wood walls, and a chunky wooden lattice across the top. I want my booth to be extra fun and festive to reflect the unpretentious, whimsical nature of the items I sell. So I decided to sew up some simple pennant banners and hang them from the lattice.
First I searched through my stash of vintage fabric and pulled out six of my favorites. I chose a couple of 1940s bark cloth remnants and four floral textiles. Then, I added a cotton mini-print fabric on the reverse side, several yards of double-fold bias tape at the top — and voilà!
Measuring over eight feet long each, I'm hoping these pennant banners will add just the right touch of whimsy to my booth. Once they are up later this month, I'll snap a photo to share with you.
Oops. I almost forgot to mention — the banners will be for sale!
