Whether it is your go-to bag for shopping or a gift for someone, this simple and chic crossbody purse is a great bag for everyday of the year.
1. Begin by creating a pattern. Using a Fiskars cutting mat and acrylic ruler line the ruler up with the 45 degree line on the mat, and penciling a 9 inch line on the paper. Make a mark at the 9 inch point on the vertical edge of the paper. Using the ruler and pencil, connect the mark you just made with the end of the 45 degree line you drew. Cut the triangle out and you have a pattern.
2. Fold a yard of burlap in half, pin the pattern to the burlap, and cut around the pattern. You will need one double layered triangle for each pennant you want on your banner. Stitch the two layers for each pennant together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
3. Using the cutting mat, ruler, and the 45 mm Comfort Grip Rotary Cutter, cut a 5 inch by 8 inch rectangle of fabric from scraps for each pennant. If you want finished edges you can fold the edges of each piece over and iron them.
4. Fold one of the rectangles in half, right sides together.
5. Sandwich the edge of a pennant between the edges of the rectangle and pin the layers together.
6. Stitch close to the edges of the rectangles, remove the pins, and string a decorative ribbon or strip of fabric through the pockets you just created.
7. Using a very wide silver mesh ribbon as stringing material it fills the pocket out. If the pocket is too big or slick for the material you choose to string with, the pennants may slide around when the bunting is hung. Stuff tissue paper or quilt batting into the pockets to fill them and prevent them from sliding around.
Assembling the Stars of David
1. Simply assemble 3 popsicle sticks into the shape of a triangle and dab a little glue on the ends of the sticks to hold them together making sure to line the ends of the sticks up neatly.
2. When the glue is dry, create the stars by placing one triangle, base side up, on top of another triangle, base side down. Dab on more glue to hold them together.
3. When the glue on the stars has dried, use embroidery floss and a large needle to stitch the stars to the pennants.
This is how the finished pennants will look.
And now it's ready to hang for your Hanukkah celebration!
1 yard burlap
Fabric scraps measuring at least 5 inches x 8 inches
