When I started thinking about 4th of July ideas, I felt like I had so much time.
Now I am one day away from the 4th of July and realized that I haven't posted a single 4th of July craft this year! Big huge fail on my end. Sorry guys. And I apologize in advance for the onslaught of 4th of July posts that will be airing today 🙂
First up, my 4th of July Bandanna Table runner! I had this idea since last year, but never got around to creating it. So I wanted to be sure to post it first this year!
It is so simple to do, and fairly inexpensive too!
You Will Need:
- 5 bandannas (your choice of color, but I used 3 navy blue and 2 red) (about $1 each at WalMart)
- needle or sewing machine
- iron (optional)
- First thing is to iron those bandannas. This is optional, but mine were really bad looking so I took a few minutes to iron my bandannas and they looked a lot cuter.
- Put right sides together on two bandannas and sew one edge together leaving about a ½" seam allowance. (give or take, this isn't rocket science and there is no need for perfection! Just straight stitch those babies together!) You can also use a needle and thread for this step if you prefer.
- Continue stitching bandannas together until they are all sewed together
- Iron the seams flat
