On Wednesday night, Alysa and I locked ourselves in the "pink room" and had one of our midnight crafting sessions (isn't amazing how much you can accomplish when you aren't constantly being interrupted by kids?). We made these absolutely adorable SPRING pennant banners. We had found a rare moment to meet at JoAnn's earlier to pick out the perfect spring fabric, and what we found so so stinkin' cute that it gave me the "girlies"(my definition for the aching desire to have a little girl), particularly the sheer pink fabric dotted with little tiny daisies. A-dor-a-ble!
Stampin' Up! and the pennant die to cut the perfect scallopy pennants, two layers each with the sheer flowery fabric in back, and different pink or green patterned fabric in front.
Then we sewed them onto the perfect striped wide ribbon.
We found the letters on clearance at JoAnn. They matched perfectly and already had eyelets in them. We punched holes into the banners with the Crop-a-dile, and tied the letters on with sheer white ribbon.
To finish it off we threaded some buttons with pink taffeta ribbon, and used them for centers to out die-cut flowers that we layered over the scallop circles that get cut with the pennants, and stitched them between each pennant. Sew sweet.
We are thrilled with how darling and springy they turned out! What do you think?
And for those of you who missed it, here is a peek at my very first fabric pennant banner I created for Valentine's Day. I made them and surprised Alysa with hers. I was so excited when I saw my finished project that I was truly giddy! One of my favorite crafts ever!
I made this banner the same, except I use the leftover scalloped circles to make rosettes instead, and I used smaller chipboard letters that I glittered.
Which banner do you like better?
Can't wait to make my next one!
