i just think it is the greatest thing in the world.
i started with 1 yard of funky fabric, 1/2 yard of flannel, and 1/4 yeard of just regular white fabric.
i figured out how many triangles i needed for my banner (20-and i still have left overs!). like my method of cutting? i marked 10" on the peice of wood and went to town.
next i pinned all the funky fabric triangles to the flannel so that they would have some backing to them. the fabric, although funky, wasnt thick enough.
then after cutting and sewing the letters on-TA-DA! a huge reminder that it is MY birthday month!
(yes, i do get a month! all 3 boys get their own birthday week. the'd get more if they werent all in november.)
