Sew Much Fun

After ringing in the New Year, I’ve spent the majority of my time planning our wedding or traveling! {More on that at a later time.} Needless to say, all of the busyness has kept me from blogging – sincere apologies.

In the midst of all the busyness, I made some time for me and the Singer. {Singer is the new addition to my home. She was a gift from my parents for Christmas.} After only one month with Singer, I’m in love.

A few random strips of fabric, $50+ spent at Joann’s, and a YouTube video later… I began my first, real project – a “thank-you,” pendant banner for our engagement session. Talk about a project to start with, no pressure.

With the wheels of my brain turning and pinterest inspiration, I set out on a mission. With Singer, an old hymnal, scissors, paint, burlap, and twine, I began my first, sewing craft. This project had me uber excited about our engagement photo session. {More photos and a post to come!}






20120131-211537.jpgWant to make your own? Here are my step-by-step directions for a homemade, pendant banner.

Step 1: Choose the paper – any paper will do. I chose my favorite hymns. Cut isosceles triangles out of the pages.
Step 2: Paint a letter on each triangle. (I’m spelling “Thank You” – so, I started with T.)
Step 3: Cut a strip of burlap, approximately 1″ in width. (This step allows the paint to dry.)
Step 4: Sew away. Fold the burlap strip over each triangle and sew together. (Make sure to leave space for rope or string to thread the pendant letters together.)
Step 5: Admire your finished product.
