The Birthday Banner

The Birthday Banner
This is a crafty piece that we hang at every birthday!

I wish I could claim credit for this because it is so cute but I have to give credit where credit its due.  My good friend Candace designed this for a monthly craft group that we are in together.  She even put most of mine together for me since my baby was 4 days old on craft night that month!  Isn't she sweet!  She is also one of the most talented Super Mommies I know.  She can look at almost anything and then go make it!  Check out her blog here.
I did iron on my own letters and string them onto jute rope.
I should have her guest post to how-to's but I think the photo shows the details.  Cut out squares of coordinating fabric.  Sew them inside out, then turn them right side out and trim with pinking shears, then fold over the tops.  Sew and then string onto rope.  I put ribbons between each letter because I have a thing for ribbon right now.  Then cut out letters and iron them on with a heat-n-bond or stitch witchery from a fabric store.  Candace, feel free to correct me!


  1. You made your looks SO much better than I did! I LOVE it with the ribbon. Nice job Angela! You explained it well....just don't look to closely at my crappy stitching! :)

  2. About how tall did you make each block? I LOVE this! Super cute!

  3. Since I finished that book I've started 4 businesses.
