I was so happy for the day after Thanksgiving this year, not only because I was off work but also because we started getting ready for Grace’s FIRST Christmas! I must admit, it was a bit different than what I am use to…since it was 80 degrees and we got our tree from a Home Depot parking lot where they trimmed the tree, put on the tree stand and tied it to your car for you. However, we stepped up our decorations to make up for it 🙂
This year I added a “Merry Christmas” banner. I told you I love these things now!
I followed this tutorial for the most part. The two differences…I used a different shape and I added letters to the banner.
I used this template for the flags on the banner. Then to add the letters I created a word document, using word art…I picked a font I liked and a size that would fit on my flag and printed each letter. I cut out the letters and traced them backwards on the back side of my fabric (make sure the letter is backwards so the letter is not backwards when you flip the fabric to right side). After I cut out all the letters I used Fabric Glue to attache the letters to the flags.
