I haven't had much scrappy time this week, but instead a lot more personal things going on. However, I had no school on Monday because the town water main burst and there was no water (funny because most of NJ had too much water over the weekend), so I was able to work on this wedding gift for my brother and his fiance. The bridal shower is this weekend, and I wanted to give a gift in addition to the bridal party's gift. This is part 1: a fabric banner! First, I have to say the photos do not do it justice because it was cloudy and rainy still on Monday and they are a bit dark, but it is soooo pretty in real life!
To make, I used wonder-under and ironed it onto the fabric, and then ran that through my Big Shot with the SU! banner die cut. I then stitched around the inside of the banner with a straight stitch (on the sewing machine). I used some In-Color grosgrain polka dot ribbon from SU! to connect the banner, and all I did was pin the ribbon to each banner and then run it through my sewing machine to adhere them together with a zig zag stitch. I then embellished the front by making these cute fabric flowers and then cutting the letters from my Big Shot out of chipboard and paper.
