My baby boy will be one soon so I'm getting ready for his birthday using the scraps I got this past weekend at the Scrap Exchange. I've seen banners like this in Pottery Barn Kids. I liked them so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I cut two triangles out of fabric and sewed them with the right sides together, just like you would a pillow. Then I turned them inside out and pressed them flat. I didn't sew the third side of the triangle (the top of the pennant) but sandwiched it between two pieces of navy grosgrain ribbon sewn together. The letters are super easy iron-ons.
The entire project took me two nights after the wee one went to bed, while the hubby was out and while listening to the latest podcast from Craft Sanity. I love that these old scraps are now something we'll get to enjoy year after year.
