Fabric Strip Banner


Here's a festive banner for any occasion-- just using fabric!
You'll need:
 fabric-1/4 to 1 yard in the colors you want
 (My banner is only about 3 ft. long.  I bought 1/2 yard each of 5 different colors and ended up only using half of it.)  
Some kind of cording, lightweight rope, ribbon or jute
When choosing your banner cording, consider if it will be mostly outdoors or indoor and how long/heavy the banner will be- buy cording thickness accordingly
I like using the craft cording below or nylon cording.


 Cut off white edges of fabric. Then I cut my fabric in half.







Cut snips on the short side of your fabric square every 1 1/2 inches.  

At that cut, rip the fabric to get your strips.


After you have all your fabric strips.  Decide what order you want them in and line up for an assembly line.


Fold the fabric strip in half and place under the cord.


Take your ends and put through the loop.



Pull through...


Tighten.  


Keep adding your strips. 


Love it!  Stay tuned to see what this banner  is used for!

  1. The banner looks so pretty and festive Heidi. I love that the fabric strips edges haven't been neatened up. It makes it look so whimsical
