more recycled birthday decorations


Silk flags on grosgrain ribbon, made from old fabric swatches that were rescued by a friend before they were tossed! They are already serged on the edges, but the ones that aren't are just cut for now (it was a day before the party project), folded on top and stitched on with a straight stitch.
Before stitching, I measured with the ribbon to see how long to make the strand of flags. We like them so much, they are staying up for a while.
