To start, I used this template from Sweetly Scrapped Art. Then, I used a bold, size 300 font with the letters spelling "Happy Birthday."
The letters become the stencils. I first traced the letters onto the fabric I wanted and cut them out.
Then I sewed the letters onto the center of the triangles.
After I sewed the letters on, I cut two strings of jute. The "Happy banner should be on about 104" of jute. I folded each triangle over the jute and sewed underneath the jute. This makes each flag lay perfectly in place but still movable on the string. The "Birthday" banner will be longer than the "Happy" banner by about 10-15." I forgot to take an exact measurement. I then Tied a knot in the top of the two strings to hang them by. I leave an extra foot on each end to hang down because I think it looks cute. You could make your strings shorter and leave that part off. It depends on the look you are going for.
|This is the one I made for my sister in law. I figured it would work for my nieces and nephews birthdays.|
Anyway, I hope this is pretty simple for you guys. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope this tutorial was simple enough. I'd love to see the banners you make.
