Sara's Room - Pennant Banner

It has been awhile since I had any inside projects to share.
AND since today I FINALLY found a few minutes to make the Pennant Banner for Lil Sara's bedroom and seemed like the perfect quick easy project to share.

I measured and cut out my triangles from a muslin fabric...7 inches across the top and 7.5 inches long and marked out where I want the letters to go....Mixed all purpose glue 50/50 with water..Then lastly because you want the ink as fresh as possible, I printed out my inspiration word "IMAGINE" as a mirror image in my desired font.

I cut each letter out individually, then one at a time paint the glue/water mix on to the letter...Lay it face down onto the pennant, using a damp cloth smooth it out...

Because I am impatient I then ironed the paper dry...

Lift off your paper and TA-DA...the ink has transfered to the fabric..
I went over the outline with a artline pen to get a more defined letter..

After I did all my letters I sewed a 1/4inch channel at the top of each triangle...

Lastly I threaded ribbon thru the channels and then hung the banner on Lil Sara's bedroom wall...

Her room is well on it's way to country chic now

What I have left to-do in Lil Sara's room:
Paint Mirror Frame
Paint Name Artwork Frame
Sew Curtains
Put additional shelving in toy closet
Stencil back of bookcase.
