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.
