Bust out the Bikini Bottoms!

I showed the hubby my latest project, and he says "It looks like you hung bikini bottoms on the chalkboard, why don't you take it down and then the room will look good."  HA!!!
(Especially since I don't even own a bikini!)

I grabbed some fabrics from JoAnn's.

Followed this tutorial,  and cut out my triangles, they were 8"high and 6" across.

The two triangles on the right were sewn on the edges with a zig zag stitch, they are double sided.
 After sewing all of them,  I sewed them to a grosgrain ribbon I had and hung them up.

I ended up needing 11 triangles for about 60 inches of chalkboard.

I could iron them, but I kinda like them curvy.
This only took about 2 hours, super easy and cute, I might use it outside sometime for kids parties too.


  1. That is so something my husband would say. Wait what's your husband's name? Just checking to see if my husband has a secret family out there. Your "bikini bottoms" are really cute. Tell him it's the rage in Europe, you're going topless.

  2. Your Hubby is so loony toons! Turned out great! I alway love a good bunting!

  3. Hahaha! Your post made me laugh:) I'm your newest follower and look forward to reading future posts!


  4. Hilarious! I never would have thought that! I love banners - this one is so pretty! Great job! ;)
