Last week, the Lizard Lounge partnered with Pendleton’s new line, Thomas Kay, to launch a new collection for men. For this event, I made a new entry display featuring their line mixed with Horny Toad’s new Fall collection. I asked Pendleton (based in Portland, OR) for some scraps of fabric from the Thomas Kay line that I could use to make a flag banner for the entry. The results were fantastic and the flags were surprisingly easy to make. (Thanks for helping Mom!)
Here’s a video clip pulling the entry display together and a DIY on making your own flag banner. Enjoy!
My favorite mannequins on the right show the Horny Toad Women’s Mixologist in blue velvet with the Finola Beanie and a vintage piece of burgundy velvet ribbon as a belt. The man is wearing the Horny Toad Finnegan sweater in black, which is actually cute as an oversized women’s sweater in my opinion.
FLAG BANNER DIY
- Paper, Scissors
- X-tra Wide double bias (seam) tape
- Sewing machine (and someone who knows how to sew)
COST: $12 for the seam tape
Step 1: Cut out a paper triangle template.
Step 2: Use template to maximize the amount of triangles you can get out of a piece of fabric and trace with marker.
Step 3: After you have cut out enough flags, determine how far apart you want to place them on the seam tape.
Step 4: The seam tape is already folded in half making it easy to use and looks nice on both sides. Place the flag between the folds and sew down using a zig-zag stich.
