I know I am supposed to be posting about Nora today, but I have so much to write about her and so little time. I hosted a baby shower for my friend Claire yesterday and between getting ready for that and heading to Calgary tomorrow to do some shopping and errands, I know I won't do a great job of Nora's post this week. So I am putting it off until Friday.
I will tell you this, though: She has a third tooth!!! Stay tuned for photos on on Friday!
I have seen these little banners all over the web. They are so simple, yet so cute and would look adorable hanging over a crib in a nursery. This whole project took me about an hour. I made this one for my friend Claire's baby girl Ellie and used it as decoration at a baby shower I held for her this week.
|Here are the materials you will need: a couple of different colours of felt, scissors or a rotary cutter, bias tape and a sewing machine or needle and thread.|
|First you need to decide how many pennants to have. I did 9 on mine- 5 for the letters in the name which were in the center and two on either sides. Cut the triangles in the size of your choice.|
|Then cut out the embellishments you will add on to your bunting.|
|Next you need to sew your triangles onto the bias tape. I used a zig zag stitch on my sewing machine in a contrasting thread just to add a little interest.|
|Start sewing a little ways before the triangles start so you have some extra to hang the bunting with afterwards.|
|At this point, you could glue your embellishments onto the bunting if you didn't want to sew it, sew it with a machine, or do it by hand. I like the hand done look, so that's what I did.|
It makes a really cute decoration and a great keepsake too!
