Today’s craft project is a name banner designed by Louise, a mother of two little ones (4 yrs old and 15 months) who lives in Oakland, California. Louise spends her days as an environmental policy researcher at a local think tank, but loves to delve into the domestic arts (sewing, knitting, gardening, etc.) in her spare time. Hard to imagine having any free time with her dance card, but Louise makes it happen!
We thought that this project would especially appeal to those of you out there with a stock pile of fabric lying around that you don’t quite know what to do with. Takes about an hour (not including drying time) and the result is simply adorable.
6) The last thing I did was stamp the letters on the flags. Now that I have done it, I realize that you might want to do this first in case you mess it up. But, I was sort of winging it. I decided to stamp the letters using. Since I did not have large format letter stamps, I carved simple block letters from rubber blanks that I had from the craft store. You could also do freezer paper stencils, embroidery, or applique letters. And, of course, you could include more flags than letters and add figures or motifs or anything.
Thank you for sharing, Louise!
