This week is my daughter’s 9th birthday. She has been counting down the days all summer. I’ve been meaning to make her this banner to decorate her room for a very long time. I decided to make it this week. Just in time to decorate for her birthday party. Then she can hang it in her room.
It’s from a fabric panel by Riley Blake’s designer Quilted Fish. I just made a quilt sandwich from the panel, quilted the whole thing, then cut out each pennant with pinking shears. There are raw edges, which looks really cute. There is a great video tutorial on Riley Blake’s website here – Banner Video Tutorial
I just love Riley Blake fabrics.
The panel came with cute little circles that can be used to embellish the pennants, or used on their own if you like.
I just love the colors in the banner. Don’t you?
This one is my daughter’s favorite.
This banner is just perfect for my daughter. She’s such a happy child. I hope this makes her even more happy.
