My little sister is 8.5 months pregnant and little tucker will be here before we know it! I always like sewing a project (or two) for the little ones in the family. I think it started when my niece, who is starting college this year, was born. I made her an over the top frilly crib set…it was a little bit country and not rock and roll.
For Tuc, I settled on making him a banner that can hang in his room. It was easy as pie to stitch.
First, I printed large block letters from my computer that spelled…”Tucker”.
Next, I ironed fusible webbing to the back side of the applique fabric. The fabric is Robot Factory by Robert Kaufman.
Next, I cut a backing fabric from some plain cotton muslin. Pinned around the sides.
I sewed around the sides (not the top). I clipped the corner at the point to remove the bulk, turned right-side out and pressed.
Lastly, I lined up my triangles and pinned a long piece of ribbon across the top of the banner. I sewed in place and trimmed my threads.
Thanks for stopping by!
