Fabric pennants and banners are everywhere right now! So for a surprise birthday party, I decided to create a name banner. I used leftover fabric from a quilt I made for the same person. After looking at several tutorials, I decided to create a simple rectangle banner. I used my pinking shears to cut the rectangles and sewed a simple seam to sandwich them. The letters were created using my own drawing and Wonder Under. How have I never used this double sided fusible interfacing before? It was really cool. Black bias tape strung all of the rectangles together, and voila!
The photo was a little grainy and dark, so I lightened it and there appears to be a halo around the rectangles, but there really is not. Just black, white, and pink fabric. I will definitely be making more of these in 2013.
