A Lantern Makeover
You see them everywhere - plain white paper lanterns, this one cost me about 1.5€ at IKEA.
I had the idea that I should decorate it with some wee-little bunting. I had a very clear picture of the end product in my mind and started out full of exuberance one night.
I needed binding to attach my little flags to - so long 2 inch strips of fabric were ironed into binding. (For those quilt-impaired, this means iron the material in half long ways, open up and fold each edge into the centre and iron again, then fold the whole thing back in half on itself. Keeps all the messy cut edges folded inside.)
