I love using my fabric scraps! And I do love those doily banners. I wanted to make one but with a touch of katie jean. So here is my little tutorial just for your enjoyment!
Go through your fabric scraps and cut various pieces in random a 1/2″ width. The length can vary. This can be very random and imperfect. Your kids can even help out here! No need to iron the strips.
Cut your doilies in half. Here I used 6″ diameter doilies. Check out the $ store for a good deal on these.
Here I start to sew them up. I start with a bit of a tail and then add the first doily. The next strip of fabric is just laid on top of the previous piece. There is maybe a 1/2″ of overlap there.
I take about six stitches and then lay down another doily right on top of that little strip of fabric. My needle was already done for when I started this project so I didn’t worry about ruining it. I just changed it when I was through sewing on the paper.
And it’s finished! I just love seeing all of the different bits of fabric peaking through!
It came out really long! I just had fun doing a little crafty easy sewing. I did not want to stop!
Can you see the fabric peaking through the white paper. It looks almost transparent with the light coming through the back. These will be up for my girl’s birthday party! I hope this little tutorial inspires you to use some of your fabric scraps. Thanks for looking!
