A tiny fairy bunting banner is all the rage these days. While creating some bunting for Starboy's birthday party, I decided the fairies would feel left out if their space didn't have some celebration in it, too.

I first saw the idea on the spectacular We Bloom Here blog. She used red thread and paper, so simple! I wanted our fairies to have matching party bunting, however, and I didn't feel like wrestling with glue.
And, the sewing machine already was out and set up.
On my second try, I folded slightly taller scraps, then stitched along the top and the bottom, both. Along the bottom I had to sew two lines, to create a channel for the needle. When I cut the triangles out, there were hardly any scraps left, as the negative space from one triangle became a new triangle. This resulted in much quicker bunting-making.
