make something pretty: fall fox bunting

I haven’t had a Make Something Pretty Today post in a long time. I just don’t have time to sew anymore. I had the pieces for this bunting all cut out, and then sitting for a while. I wanted to have it displayed for fall, though, so took a Saturday morning to finish it up. These things are ironed 3 times, and for me it’s the ironing I never get around to.

Plus I had to go buy off-white binding for the string. And hey, this time only 12 flags fit on the length of binding–usually 14 fit. So I didn’t expect that, and made 2 extra pennants.

The colors aren’t exactly traditional for autumn, but I wanted to use the fox fabric. And the orange sort of makes it autumnal, right?

Altogether, I’m happy with how it turned out!
