Do you remember the fun interview that we posted yesterday? Well, that was just the teaser! Paige is sharing with us today a tutorial for a cute Felt Fall Banner. Take it away, Paige!
I'm very excited to be here at To Sew With Love! The funny thing is that I love this blog, but I am terrible at sewing! It's true - I got a sewing machine for Christmas 5 years ago from my mother-in-law and I have tried and tried to get the hang of it, but I still feel like such a novice. I lack patience and I don't pay enough attention to detail.
My mom once told me that the backside of a project should look as good as the front side and that just definitely doesn't make sense to me...who sees the back side?! I definitely feel more comfortable behind the computer!
Today I've got a super easy project that anyone can make. It's so easy, I didn't even take step-by-step pictures...cause I finished it so fast!
Here's the supplies:
Felt - I bought the 8.5 x 11 sheets from Hobby Lobby
I cut out the letters for "Fall" out of paper with my Silhouette SD, but you could cut them out by hand. (I used the font "Duality")
I glued the letters onto the felt with this super cool cold silicone glue (it's like hot glue only cold).
I have no idea if they carry this in the States...I've only seen it in Mexico. Next, I stitched around the edge of the felt square with the craft thread. See, I can sew!
I used other colors of felt and the thread to make leaves and hot glued groups of them onto the felt. Then, I strung them together with the thread.
That's it. I know it's not brain surgery, but I think it turned out super cute!
I plan on making one for Christmas, too!
(I also made the striped fall palette art - check out that tutorial here.)
Isn't that a really cute banner? It would be a nice weekend project too with your kids!
We enjoyed having Paige here at TSWL, all the way from Mexico ^^). Thanks a lot, Paige for sharing this cute tutorial with us. Ladies, don't forget to visit Paige's blog for more of her creative projects!
Have a lovely day!
