Red White and Blue Bandana Banner
This red White and Blue Bandana Banner is SUPER simple but really makes a statement!
All you need is a couple of red and blue bandanas, thread, pins, ribbon and a sewing machine. I used a rotary cutter, but scissors would work too!
The most complicated part of this project is to cut your bandanas. While they do not have to be perfect, you do want them to be pretty close in size so that your banner will look uniform! I would suggest a rotary cutter to make clean straight lines, but if you fold it and iron it, then cut it, you should be just fine!
You want to cut each bandana into 8 even triangles. I found the best way to do this was to start with a fold from corner to opposite corner.
Make a straight cut from the right angle to the center of the hypotenuse (Long side)
Take each new triangle and cut it from hypotenuse to the center of the right angle.
Take each of those 4 triangle and repeat the cutting procedure once more.
Now you will have 8 triangles. Repeat the same procedure with the blue bandana.
Pin the bandanas to the ribbon as shown above.
Overlap the corners approximately 1 inch when pinning.
After some trial and error, I found that 3/4″ grosgrain ribbon and a zigzag stitch worked best. Stitch the length of the ribbon being sure to catch the edge of each bandana as you go!
Such a beautiful way to show your pride for the Red, White and Blue!
