Birthday Banner

My sweet girl turned one in January. The past year has flown by, and I am still adjusting to the idea that my baby is now technically a toddler.

We had a small family party for her in our home. For decorations, I sewed two fabric banners by following this bunting tutorial that I found via Pinterest.

I chose an orange and pink theme, and probably the hardest part for me was selecting the combination of fabrics. The rest was quite simple, and mostly I followed the tutorial. The only things I did differently were that I sewed 3/8″ around the sides of the triangles (instead of 1/2″), and I used a pinking blade on my rotary cutter (instead of pinking shears).

My husband suggested re-using them for subsequent birthdays. The crafter in me would prefer set these aside as keepsakes and then make something different every year, but time will tell whether I am ambitious enough to make that happen.
