This is made from a vintage curtain from Brooke and some scrap thrifted fabric. Rowan actually claims to love it- so we'll see if it really worn or not to the parade.
You can see it here laying on my partially finished hutch. I've yet to do the "antiquing" (or "dirtying", as I call it), but it is assembled and inside the house now.... as step up from in pieces on the garage floor!
A close up of the pocket and button.
What to do with all the assorted scraps I had in red, white and blue? Well, make banners, of course.
I plan to hang these from the porch at the lake. While the insides of our cabin are not yet done (and seem to be delayed a few more days -making for a cranky husband and some cancelled invitations - arg), the outside can still look festive.
I did not back the triangles of fabric with anything - thinking that they would "wave" more in the wind if they were not too sturdy. We'll see just how well they hold up, as I'd love to hang them out year after year!
