Patriotic Bunting

A couple days ago I was in a crafty mood and decided I should make something cute for the 4th of July. Since I'm slightly obsessed with bunting banners I came up with this.....
I used felt from my ridiculously large stash and cut up a pair of denim jeans that I know my child bearing hips will never fit into again. After sewing long strips of felt together, cutting them to the shape I wanted and sewing around the edges, I cut out the stars and hand stitched them on. I then just hot glued them to a piece of ribbon.
It's simple but fun and I love how it looks hanging in my living room.

Now, as I said I'm a little obsessed with banners, so here are a couple pictures of the ones I've made in the past. The peeps one is my absolute favorite.
