Happy Monday! It’s the first week of Summer Vacation and I’m ready to enjoy the sun and outdoors with my kiddos! I’m glad that I managed to get a lot of indoor projects done over the winter and spring so that I’m not working on decorating bedrooms while it is so nice outside!
I have spotted some really cute little girl rooms on pinterest and since Summer was born I’ve been pinning ideas for the day that I redid her bedroom! I started with making her quilt last year, after finding the fabric that I knew would be perfect for her room. I was really wanting purples and greys and I loved it. After I made the quilt I was super sad that I hadn’t bought a second bundle of this same fabric for another project and I didn’t even have the name of it to look it up. After a couple of months I got lucky and spotted my fabric in a bigger bundle at another fabric store and I snatched it up, not even knowing what I was going to do with it! So it has just been sitting in my draw for the past few months and I finally decided I wanted to make a banner with it.
I’m not going to lie. I thought this banner was going to be a tricky project. I thought it was going to be quite a bit of work, but it was actually super easy and I made it, start to finish in less than two hours!
I started with measuring my room and because I knew I was going to have two strands, I doubled it. I planned the tops of my triangle to be 6 inches and the 2 sides to be 9 inches and I started cutting out my triangles. Now, because I am terrible at math I accidently cut twice as many as I needed and I thought for a second about making them double sided but I decided not to, because really, I would just be making more work for myself.
Then I placed them on the floor in the order I wanted them.
Then I took this extra wide double fold bias tape and pinned it onto the tops of my triangles.
I got my sewing machine all threaded and went to town sewing the pieces of my banner together.
And just a short time later I had it pinned up on the wall!
Summer loves it and tells me almost daily how pretty it is. Sweet girl. She is such a girlie girl and I’m glad I can have fun decorating her room all sassy!
What do you think of my super easy banner?
