Banners

I was asked by a dear friend to come up with something for her son's room that was totally him,  I sat and pondered then did a little research and came up with this :







It all started in a pile of this 

 I then used my Cricut Expression to cut out the fabric 

I used the B is for Boys Cricut Cartridge for the Banner pieces and Don Juan for the lettering 
  I then took to sewing each piece together.  Each letter was sewn to each banner which was then sewn to a piece of chipboard which was then given button holes to hold the ribbon on.  each banner piece looked like this when done





After everything was sewn together I added the finishing touches and got an awesome banner I sure hope he loves it as much as I do


I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did.  I am in love with the Dinosaur fabric and now its off to make matching rag quilt for the little one to snuggle up with. 




Enjoy your day and many blessings 

Christy
