This is one of the easiest crafts to create for a birthday party or celebration. I have made a coulpe of these in the past. My best friend is using her banner in photographs. Kids can decorate their room with them. There are endless possibilities. So as I promised, here it is.
Fabric of your choice- I used burlap, I love the natural look to it. I used old dress shirt of my husband and left over ligthening McQueen and Mater fabric from pajama pants
ribbon or something to sew your triangles to
pins to hold everything in place
Cut 6-8 triangles from a pattern you have made. Draw a triangle on a piece of paper, cut it out, then trace around it on the fabric and cut them all out at once. Remember they don't need to be exact, imperfection is part of the banner.
If you want add triangles on top on triangles now is the time. To make my triangles smaller I just cut my pattern off one side a bit. About an inch of thick is what I cut off. Pin the other triangles on using pins. Add letters or characters or numbers to your triangles with more pins. I just cut out McQueen and Mater out of the flannel print that I had.
|ZigZag stitch the triangles together.|
|ZigZag stitch around character.|
Now you are ready to party it up with your new birthday banner.
What fun craft things do you make for your child's birthday celebration?
