jute webbing banner ~

Today I have an easy peasy banner that you can make in minutes!!

I had seen a few pins on Pinterest where making these involved sewing.  On a sewing machine.
Which did not sound like fun to me.  Cause sewing is just not my thing. 
 I can do it, I just don't love it.

So I gathered up my supplies.  You'll need:

jute chair webbing (purchased at Hobby Lobby)
a needle

 First, just cut your webbing into pennants.  I just free-handed it.


You'll need a pretty long length of thread depending on how many pennants you want on your banner.
 Just start hand stitching the top of each pennant.  I just did two long stitches on each one.

 One finished flag will look like this:

 Three of them fit perfectly on an old door top!
So charming!

 This old door showed up outside my shop last week.  I have no idea where it came from but I just love it!  I leave it propped up beside the shop's front door and I thought one of these banners would look cute for the patriotic season we're in.

So, that's it!  So simple, so quick!

Very cute! I've been trying to think of some crafts I can take on vacation that don't require hauling a lot of supplies - this just might make the cut (get it? cut?)
