Happy Birthday Banner

Small Fry will be turning 1 next month so I am trying to get some things ready. I wanted to make a Happy Birthday banner for the party. I have seen all kinds of styles and ideas for these on different blogs. I came up with a simple way to make one for our party. I used felt and iron on fleece. I cut out triangles of each then ironed the fleece onto the back of the felt triangle. I then stitched around the edge of each of the triangles. Next I made my applique letters (see the following post for a tutorial on how to do this). After the letters were all sewn on I attached the triangles together with a long white ribbon. I had some ribbon on a spool and so I just kept pulling more off the spool until they were all sewn on (this saved a measuring and cutting step). I folded a loop on the ends of the ribbon for hanging before I sewed it down. Finally after all the triangles were sewn to the ribbon I added some buttons which I just hot glued on to add a little embellishment. I am super happy with how it turned out. You will have to wait until the B-day party to see the complete project but here are a few snap shots.
