Upcycling How-to : Felt Scraps into Festive Banner!

 After cutting out dozens of little felt shirts for my gnome project, I was left with lots of little felt triangles. Each one too small to be used for piecing or applique, but too large to simply stick in the stuffing bin.

But they were already all shaped like little pennants, perfect for getting your swag on!
I lined them all up and stitched along the top, there's a little gap between each flag where the machine wraps the two threads together. If you have an old ribbon or very skinny fabric strip (such as a selvedge) one could use that to hold it all together.
Bam! Cute as hell. Super easy. No waste. Decorate all your shit. Upcycle. Go make stuff.
