Just because there a million cute things to do for little girls the little boys need fun stuff too. I made this little banner for C. out of scrapes from his quilt.
When my friend saw it she made one for her grandchild for his birthday. Also out of her left over quilt project fabrics.
A's mom is the one who asked me to do it in the first place so here is how I did it.
Decide how big you want your banner and how long you want it to be. The Happy Birthday Banner would have been very long so the flags are a little small and they overlap each other. The flags for A's room are 7" by 7". A's and C's banners are just glued together, The 'Happy Birthday' flags are sewn together and so they have added size for seam allowances.
Trace the flag onto 'Heat n Bond or 'Wonder Under' or whatever adheasive product you would use to applique something. If you are making 7 flags trace it seven times leaving a 1/2" space between each flag. Cut between tracings. Iron onto the backside of fabric.
Using a decorative rotary blade. . .
. . .cut lower edges of flag 1/4" from edge.
