My cute Banner/flag for my camper…and how to make one

A few months ago, we were at a beautiful campsite on the cliffs of the ocean.  One of the campsites had a pretty, colorful flag banner hanging up.  I just loved it.  I think it was Tibetan prayer flags, something you might find at Pier 1.  I decided to make some of my own.  I wanted it to be fun, whimsical, and colorful.  I used only supplies from my stash.  So, this project cost me ZERO.  Yay!  I made a video of how I made them.  I didn’t follow any sort of instructions, so I had a hard time giving instructions.  lol.  I used fabric that was cut to 5″ x 8″.  There was no particular reason for this size.  I just had to pick something.

I also used 2 double fold bias tape for my “string” to attach my flags to.  Each one of those was 3 yards, so about 9 feet.  I was going to make one long banner, but I ended up making two.

Here is the video showing you how I made them.  I must comment about my so called “how to” videos.  Ugh.  I don’t start out thinking about making a “how to” video.  I decide to make something, and I think, “hey, this would make a good video”.  Then I start trying to film what I’m doing.  So.  I love to watch “how to” videos, and I can see that I am truly not giving enough information.  I just want you to know that I realize this, and I’m working on it.  So, feel free to ask my any questions, and I will do my best to answer them.


They are so cute!!!  If you make some, please post a photo of it.

Hugs, Stephanie
