Birthday wishes

I made our family birthday banner out of felt. I wanted something really beautiful and handmade, that could be passed down when Starboy has kids. If he wants. If it lasts. The letter squares are pinned to a long ribbon with straight pins, since I haven't come up with a better way to string it, yet. Hanging it up is a delicate process.

There are additional name banners for Techman and Starboy, but I'd never finished mine—until this summer!

I printed the letters on white paper then pinned them to felt and cut them out. I used a Craftsman style font, to match our old house. Then, simple sewing on the machine. I would have loved to have hand-embroidered them, but there is just way too much real estate to cover.

 I'm excited that I'll be able to add Mommy under the banner next year!
