Baby Girl Banner and Sneak Peak...

I am almost done with Princess LB's room! Complete reveal coming soon!!
I wanted to make an "I am a Daughter of God" sign for her room, and my idea was to do it on wood and hand paint the letters. But then I thought of a banner and how much fun (and easier!) they are to make.
I went to Hobby Lobby and saw the felt and iron on letters and I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do!


First, I did not want my banner to be too big. I marked a 3 inch dot and then half of that. From the middle dot I marked using another 3 inch dot that would be the top of the triangle.


Next I drew the lines.

Since I do not like to waste fabric, I made triangles using the previous triangle as a base. Here I just marked a 3 inch dot from the axis of the former triangle, drew a line and then from the right I drew another line to join the top.

And so forth..

When I was done it looked like this:


I cut them.

And prepared the letters for ironing.



 I ironed them using the cotton setting.

 Here they are all done!


Next I glued ribbon on the back.

  And on the front...
  All done.




And now for a little sneak peak...remember this lamp?


Reveal soon...
Happy Friday!!!
