How is your week going so far? I hope you are enjoying your summer. I'm enjoying mine by staying away from the heat. :D
Well, I am stopping by to share my recent creation. Since summer is a great season for outdoor (and indoor) parties/get-togethers, I decided to create a little piece of party décor- a "denim" banner.
I added faux stitching around the letters and edges.
I love creating banners. They are festive and usually, simple to create. I wanted this banner to be not only decorative, but functional, too. (I apologize for the grainy picture. The light was beginning to fade.)
And here is the functional part: I added storage compartments on the ends for light-weight party necessities (napkins, utensils, straws, etc.)
And in keeping with the denim theme, I sewed some placemats. I traced the negative section of my die-cut banner flowers onto the placemats. Then I used fabric paint over the tracing.
(Supplies: cardstock; die-cut flowers & letters- Cameo; sequins; hole punch; white pen; twine- We R Memory Keepers; fabric- Joann's; fabric paint- Tulip; sewing machine)
I would like to link this project to the following, please:
*Decorate to Celebrate- (outdoor party or birthday)
*Craftin Desert Divas- (summer)
I only made 2 placemats for our tiny table, but I think I'm off to make some more. :) Thank you so much for stopping by. I greatly appreciate your visit. :D
