First of all,
I bought this drapery lining
thinking it was the Roclon product
that everyone is painting on.
It was not.
So it was tossed into the stash.
In the archeological dig
that I am calling
Painting My Way Out Of My Paint Room,
I unearthed it.
In the middle of the night,
it came to me...
So here is what I did.
Made a template.
Vinyl flooring makes the greatest patterns!
You can choose what size you make,
it's pretty simple fourth grade geometry.
Make sure that you make that little area on the top to fold over.
Trace them onto the fabric.
Now I know that I could have utilized this better by making them go both ways.
I have lots
it was cheap.
You can see that I started alternating them
then thought, "why?"
Paint them your choice of colors,
painting right over the lines.
staying in the lines is overrated.
Retrace the ones that you can't see.
Then repaint them
shade the edges.
In the event that you like my colors,
here is what I used.
The purple shading is a mix of the blue and the red.
grab your creativity
Let the colors flow,
Try different combinations
that you would not normally use!
this stuff is cheap,
it's a great place to experiment.
Dig out stencils,
Let them dry and varnish.
I used a flat outdoor varnish.
Retrace them if needed
Dig out that glue gun
or ric rac.
And glue away.
Now, how fun are these?
How many combinations could you make?
They would make a great gift for a kid's room,
you name it.
I love pennants!
They are showing up everywhere at my house.

By the way,
I did order the RIGHT stuff this morning.
Have to wait and see what I might do with it!
