Baby Shower Banner

My cousin contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked if I could make her a fabric banner/bunting for her friend's baby shower.  She also wanted me to put the baby's name on the banner.  This is what I ended up with. 

I started by picking out four different fabrics in coordinating colors.  She requested pink for the baby girl! 

Then I found a template HERE so that my flags would be the perfect size.  I grabbed my rotary cutter, mat, and fabric and got to work cutting flags.

After I cut out my flags, I pinned two together back to back so that the bunting would be double sided.  Then I sewed around the sides using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. 

Then I trimmed each flag with pinking shears to add a cute detail and strength.

Then I pinned the flags to double-fold bias tape approximately 2-3 inches apart and then sewed the flags to the bias tape.

To add the name, I first found a font online that I liked.  I used Marcelle Script. Then I printed her name on card stock and cut out the letters. 

Then I traced the letters onto a small piece of fabric that I ironed onto a Heat n Bond iron-on adhesive.  

Once all letters were traced, I cut them out, peeled off the paper and ironed on to the flags.
