a swag project

on a shopping trip to a little antique mall a few months ago i saw a little swag and the penants were cut from an old quilt. i was really tempted to buy 2 for my headboard, but as always, when i saw the price was 9.99 for one, i thought, "oh i can make that". normally i never get around to doing that but this time i actually did sit down to make one for myself. i really wanted them to look shabby and vintage so i wasn't worried that my sewing skills are not too great.  i just figured it would work with the look i was going for.
it took all day to create it.  sewing bits of lace proved to not be easy because it kept wanting to bunch up under the pressure foot of the machine.  but i stuck with it and finished it after about 5 hours.  i hung it up this morning and i love it.

here are a couple of up close shots of the little penants.  lots of vintage laces, old fabrics, a few recycled clothing fabrics, too, an old hankie and a few buttons used to make them.
i hope you feel inspired to try making one for yourself.  it was a lot of work but so worth it in the end.
