Only In America

That’s right, I made something else for the 4th. I can’t control myself, it’s becoming a sickness…
I was wandering through Melanie’s blog, The Crafty Cupboard, the other day and came upon this.

Could you just die?! I know!! It’s so dang cute!!

And I knew I must have one for my very own.
So it was off the the fabric store, unfortunately known as Wal-mart.

Let’s just say her fabrics are WAAAY cuter than mine.

But I think it turned out alright, considering what I had to work with. (boo)


She has a template posted on her blog here.
It’s a lot like the birthday banner I made a few months ago.
Only smaller. And it came together a lot faster.

I used 1/2 yard of white, and 1/4 yard each of four printed fabrics of red and blue.

I also used a sheet of blue felt and a sheet of red felt and cut out little stars.

And two packages of double fold bias tape.

I made one small one with 12 pennants on it and a large one with eighteen.

It’s cute and adds a lot to the room!
So a big thanks to Melanie and her super cute blog for inspiring me and making it more festive around here.
Her blog, by the way, you should definitely go check out. She’s got some awesome stuff on there!!
**I went to the other craft store yesterday, which is usually waay too expensive to buy anything and they had all their 4th of July stuff 25% off…and they had some darling fabrics…but I was already halfway done with this project…dang it.
