Every once in a while, I dust off the ol’ sewing machine. Mostly, I’ve stuck with basic, easy things…like curtains. Now, the curtains in my bedroom? Those took some darn thought, and I might have to post them sometime to amaze you all with my incredible skillz. But today, I will post about one of the simplest sewing projects I’ve ever done: Anja’s birthday banner.
I saw the idea on a lovely blog, where a similar banner was hanging zig-zagged across a mostly-white kitchen with some stuff on a little white modernish table. I say this because FOR THE LIFE OF ME I cannot find the post I stole this idea from! If you know, please help me out, because I’d love to link to her.
Anyway, I made a few little templates out of cardstock and traced them on some fabrics and cut them out and then just sewed one long line of them all together for a birthday banner. Here’s a pile of scraps. I cut most of them (but Husband helped with some!) while watching the Olympics. See? I can be productive and enjoy sports at the same time!
And here’s the finished product hanging up (well, a small portion of it–the whole thing is actually about 50′ long!).
So how about you lovely people? Have you tried your hand at something new lately? I’d love a link in the comments if you have a post up about it.
