Scrap Fabric Flags
I made a triangle template from newspaper and cut the flags from scrap fabric. I cut two triangular pieces for every flag and serged right sides together. The burlap is just one thickness and is zigzagged rather than serged. They are strung with (white) binding tape that was dip dyed in tea syrup to take away the stark whiteness. Cream probably would have looked better, but white was what I had so... you know they say that the art of craftiness is using what you have on hand. Or something. Anyway, there are a million tutorials all over blogland if you need one. Just google...which brings me to the question of-
Is this a pennant flag, a pendant flag or a pendent flag? I've seen them referred to in all three ways, but the grammar fanatic in me won't let it rest.
pendant (n) (or pendent): a hanging ornament
pendent (adj) (or pendant): suspended, overhanging
pennant (n): a tapering flag used especially for signaling; a flag symbolic of championship
To Donnelle- I hope the pendant flag goes with the rest of your baby decor. If not, feel free to regift or yardsale or whatever! :) Next up- quilt!
