I've been asked a few times to blog a banner tutorial.
I've tried to make this thorough and simple but if you have a question leave a comment.
1. Gather a pile of music you like and get ready to rock some banners out! YEAH
2. What you need: template plastic (can be purchased at quilt or craft stores) fat quarter's of material (also available precut at quilt and fabric stores) a marker (i like Sharpies) fabric and paper scissors rotary cutter self healing mat long clear ruler pinking shears (if you don't have the last four and plan to sew quite a bit you should invest in them)
3. Make a template A 4 by 4.5 triangle is the perfect size to get the most triangles out of a fat quarter. To make them any size determine the width and length. Find and mark the center of the width. From the middle draw a line to the length size.
