C is for celebrate

Earlier in this crazy month, my co-crafterson Heather celebrated her birthday! I made this cute banner for her, and considering she has four daughters, I'm hoping it will be put to good use :)
These come together pretty fast, and they are also cute just plain without any letters. Use a ruler and cut out a triangle from an old cereal box to use as your template. Use pinking shears (zig-zag fabric scissors) to cut the triangles from your fabric, and they won't fray. Then all you have to do is sew the banner to a ribbon and you've done it! One thing I discovered with this one, I overlapped each flag a little and I like how it hangs a lot better than others I've made.

Won't that be great at birthdays and events? I don't even have one :( That's on my craft list. Happy New Year everyone !!! We're partying at Between Naps on the Porch, The Girl Creative, and A Soft Place to Land.

I am seeing cloth banners around on lots of blogs- they are cute. I am almost thinking I should make one. Your method sounds so easy!

That came out so cute! I am just horrible at sewing shapes and things (like the letters) so I may use wunder under instead when I attempt this project. It's in the back of my mind on my "to do" list. :) Thanks for linking up. You did a great job!

I've seen a lot of banners out there in the blogosphere, and haven't really cared for them. But this one is darling, and I can see it being used a lot!
