After browsing around on Pinterest and looking at cute little girl’s rooms, I was inspired to make a baby banner for my little girl’s room. This was a simple project to do, but I have to admit, it was time consuming. I prefer quick projects with immediate results like the clothespin magnets I posted the other day! However, I did have fun making the banner, especially once I saw the results.
I decided to use drop cloth to make the baby banner. When I say drop cloth, I’m referring to the material painters use to protect the floor. In a previous post I showed you how to make a drop cloth table runner. I like using this material because it looks a lot like linen and it is sturdy.
Drop Cloth Baby Banner
Supplies you will Need to Make Banner:
enough drop cloth or whatever fabric you choose for front and back of flags (I made 10 flags)
ruler or some sort of straight edge (I used a magazine)
hemming tape or ribbon
sewing machine, needle and thread, or fabric glue
stencils or you can make your own
paint and brush
Steps to Make Drop Cloth Baby Banner
2. Cut out the flags.
3. I traced the template onto a cotton pink baby sheet for the back side of the flags.
3. Cut out the back side of the flags.
4. Use a sewing machine, needle and thread, or fabric glue to attach the front and back of the flags.
5. Use the hemming tape or ribbon to attach the flags together.
Once the flags are attached, you are ready to stencil the letters on. You can use pre made stencils or make your own. I made my own by opening a new document and typing out the letters. I used a font I had downloaded from dafont.com. I used 2peas old type font, text size 277. Print and cut out your letters.
