I Want To Share With You This Banner I made out of Lined Table Clothes.
I bought some colorful ones for Easter and they are reusable, I used all the table cloth, there was no waste and I will have it for the next party.
First made a pattern for a Double sided Banner to cut on the fold, after awhile I didnt need it, but I suggest at first you use it to calculate size.
I Tossed the liner in the Dryer to make it softer and more manageable
These are from the Pattern cuttings and after I got use to the Size I wanted, I just used my ruler
|I used jute and a zigzag stitch, stitching over the fold and I stapled the points.|
This is left over and I used them as one sided banners and stapled them to the fence after I attached them together with the thin scraps from the cuttings left from the banner using the rotery cutter, its nice and strong because the table cloth is serged.
Here they are hung, I havent taken them down because they are pretty and it goes to the playhouse and were going to have a Princes Party with Mrs. Texas. I went to buy more table clothes because I want to make some small aprons for play and small picnic table clothes that fit a childs table.
|I always do plaster pari eggs with the kids, Liberty cant paint so I made one with her foot.. I painted the egg with chalk spray paint and then painted her foot with craft paint, it was fun painting those cute toes.|
Here are somethings we did to get ready for Easter
|LillyAnn is thinking very hard here decorating her egg..|
Here are some picnikers.. LOL
do you see scrap control in the back, she is white..
made jigglers, Dexter is a jiggler maker.
I made Easter bags for treats, I like to make something quick and easy and different every year for each grandbaby, I now have *8* YES.. AND they are all under 5..
I am getting a grip on this and quilting and sewing all kinds of things..
Gotta Run, half the kids just came in and blogging isnt what you can do and there isnt a nap time, I dont know how you full time Moms do it..
