Bunting Banner Curtains

Sometimes it's difficult to decorate a dorm/temporary living place. And windows look rather naked without curtains. Solution? Bunting banner curtains.

I tend to overdecorate-- my corner is the one covered in posters, photography and art cut from Goodwill books. In my defense, I sit at my desk and homework it up so I need inspiration and distractions.

Another cheap, decorative love of mine:

Making bunting banner is SO simple. Here is one tutorial but I feel like it can be even simpler than this.

1. Cut triangles of fabric.
2. Flip the patterned sides together, sew along the edges.
3. Turn the fabric rightside out-- iron flat.
4. Take ribbon, any strip of fabric, iron it in half and then sew the triangles in between. VOILA!

I really love how the little flags look. :) I also love the view from the window even more with curtains.

I love the idea of bunting too... I think I'd rather make my own so it can be just how I want it, so thanks for the nice & easy instructions. Your room is pretty!
