Banners

I have such a thing for these. I have been meaning to make some for the kids rooms for about two years now. I made one for Addison and Anna last Friday night.

I was going through my fabric and saw these linen triangles I had left over from my Spiderweb Pillow. Perfect!
I didn't even sew, I just glued the triangles to some twine.




I made one for Anna's room too. These triangles were bigger and I used all vintage sheets and some pink linen. I love this one. I was tired of the glue, so I cut two tiny holes on either side of the triangle and put the twine through.


And this one. Oh, I had to have it. It was a birthday present from my mom. You can find one here. Isn't it fun? I really wanted it for the barn we are planning on building (someday) but for now it is here.
I am off to find another place that needs a banner....

I was so excited to discover your blog today, it's great and I love your style! I've had fun looking back through some of your archives and especially love some of your decorating projects and quilts. Anna's quilt especially, I just love the colors in that one.

Take care,

Elisabeth

I love banners! And I love your easy way of making them. Hmm...I think I have a window that needs a banner hanging across it...

I just wanted to tell you I just found your blog and really enjoyed looking through your older posts! Your home is so pretty and I love the banners(; I am wondering what color your walls are in your main living area and was hoping you wouldn't mind sharing it with me?

Once again, you make your home so lovely. Have you considered being an interior decorator? (If not, already.) :-)

Banners are great. I love yours, as always and keep thinking of making a banner. I think I have a bunch of triangles calling out.
