More Spring Craft Room Color

 

I'm adding more spring color to my loft bit by bit. Last weekend I sewed a slipcover to cover the craft table stool. Next, I wanted to add some color to my windows without covering the light and view, so I used the leftover fabric from the slipcover to make some colorful flags. 

I love to climb the stairs to the loft, turn the corner, and see the fun whimsical shapes and colors that remind me of a country fair. They make me smile and help to put me in a creative mood. 



I made a triangle pattern out of cardboard, traced around it onto the (Jo-Ann's) fabric, and cut the shapes out with pinking shears. Then I sewed the edges onto some bias tape using my sewing machine and a zigzag stitch. Fun and easy.  












 














Tucker wanted to be in every photo, so I think he wants to say hi.


Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a chance to enjoy the spring colors all around you this week.
