I am always trying to find unique, yet simple items for each space. Presentation is key in both establishments. I have to "draw" in the customers you know. My ultimate goal is to make rent each month and hopefully come out with a little extra to make and buy more items for the booths for the next month.
I usually make or buy things that I would like to have for myself in case they don't happen to sell in either space. I just hope that means I have good taste. So I thought I would try my hand at some bunting.
Bunting is all the rage now. It's everywhere- hanging at the top of your blog pages, draped across a mantle for Valentine's Day, and even on a cute birthday card. Here's a tutorial on a simple bunting I made to put on a bulletin board in one of my shops.
You will need:
- cute scrapbook paper
- bias tape
- sewing machine with thread of choice
- laminating machine (optional)
I used my Cricut and cut out about 10 pennants using the Locker Talk cartridge.
After cutting out the pennants, I used my paper cutter to cut off the wings at the end of each pennant. This made it easier to tuck in the bias tape to sew.
Next, I laminated the pieces for durability and cut them out.
Then, I stitched a seam down the back. I flipped the bunting over and sewed another zigzag line.
The finished product.
I added it to this bulletin board and placed it in my shop. This board lasted only a few days in the shop.
