Finally...

...i got one project done for Mitchie's birthday. But i had to use Avery's Hello Kitty sewing machine to do it. Mine was giving me a wicked time. I was about to toss it all in and throw my viking out the window, but that little machine came to my rescue and me and Hello Kitty , we got it done!
It is a birthday banner. I saw these in a expensive children's catalog years ago and loved them, but knew i could make them myself and save some money. i have made many. Mitchell's birthday this year is all about pirates. We are not able to hang paper streamers all over the house like usual, because 2 days after his party we are having a open house to sell this place. Anyway, i digress! Instead i made this one so it could easily go up and come down and then be hung somewhere else later on and it is all kinds of piratey!!! I hope the baby likes it.

Oh Leslie, the banner looks great, AARGHHH. Hello Kitty turned out to be a very good friend to you.

You make these banners often? Very ambitious--and so cute!! Yay for Hello Kitty! Has Avery made anything with her sewing machine?

Leslie said...

well, honestly, Avery has just been doing the beginning practice and lessons..how to sew a straight line, stuff like that.

Hello Kitty to the rescue!!! Who'd have thought, huh??? I love the banner. Doesn't Avery have one hanging in her room??? All the pirate fabric is great I love it!

If I could have any sewing machine in the world, I'd pick the hello kitty one.
