Super cute fabric streamers from My Life {as a Sugar Lander}



 
"handmade: look at this awesomeness"
"When I  think of something I want to make, I have to start on it as soon as  possible, or I think I may go crazy thinking and rethinking.  I wanted  to make some streamers, and ta da!!  You could use ribbon, but I chose  fabric, cut into fabric strips, and looped onto twine.  I did it in  maybe 30 minutes.  It will look great hanging in a doorway.  And, in a  pinch, it could be a skirt.  ;)  Or not."-My Life {as a Sugar Lander}
