I made my own triangle template. I folded each of the fabrics in half, making sure that if there were stripes, they were lined up the correct direction.
Now onto the sewing!
You will need to fold in about 1/4 inch of the top edges and iron down flat. There should be no raw edges showing. You could pin it down if you want to keep it closed, but I found that if I ironed it well, I did not need to.
I top-sewed down the top edge to keep it from getting messed up.
|You should end up with a pile of multi-patterned triangles|
Once you have your pattern figured out, this also gives you an idea of how long your finished banner will be.
I made a stack of my triangles in the right order so that as I sewed them, I could just easily grab each one in order.
And WALLAH! You are done!
I hope feel comfortable trying out this fun and easy sewing project.
