If you are not familiar with Fort Worth Fabric Studio, you should be! Jodie is the kindest and sweetest person you could ever hope to work with. She prides herself on customer service and has lightening fast shipping.
Every Friday, Jodie releases a new bundle for sale. These bundles are limited in quantities, so if you fall in love, jump on it fast. Recently, each Friday bundle has come with a project idea or tutorial. Jodie asked me to help for this week, and I couldn't have loved the bundle more. It's girly and fresh, perfect for the upcoming summer months.
This week's bundle is Pink Lemonade.
Today, I have the tutorial for the party banner. It is also perfect for decorating a girl's room or a birthday party. I still have some leftover fabric to blend into my stash or make something else, maybe a table runner.
- Pink Lemonade Fat Quarter Bundle
- Rotary Cutter & Mat
- Sewing Machine
- Pinking Shears (optional)
Start by ironing your fat quarters. Cut 2.5"x WOF strips from each fabric.
Make bias tape from strips by sewing diagonally along matched up corners of each strip. I use a bias tape maker to fold the fabric while I iron it. You can also fold and iron by hand.
Cut 6.5"xWOF strips from all fat quarters. Using a ruler, cut 6.5" tall triangles from strips.
Fold the bias tape length in half, mark. Fold a triangle in half, mark.
Match edges of the next triangle. Place clover clips on outside. Repeat with 7 triangles on each side of the center triangle. This will assure the banner is balanced.
Sew the bias tape closed, securing all the triangles.
The total length is about 4 yards. This project can be completed in an afternoon. Think of all the possible fabric combinations! I'm very excited to make alternate versions of this project.
