Construction Theme Birthday Banner

Continuing with the birthday preparations, I present you with the birthday banner. My son was torn between Mickey Mouse and trucks but ended up choosing the latter of the two. Armed with that knowledge I visited my favorite fabric store and there were no construction/truck fabrics that I liked. Disappointed in myself for being such a slacker I decided to walk by the remnants section as that always makes me feel better and there it was, the fabric I was looking for. They had about 1/4 yard left- I had to make it work. I found some matching yellow accent fabric and bias tape and got to work.

I basically did the same thing as with the V-Day banner, except I added letters to this one. I printed them off and then traced them on WonderUnder which I then ironed on to the yellow fabric and cut out carefully.

I will post pictures from the birthday party next week so you can see how it looks hanging up but I couldn't do that today since I want it to be a surprise for the little guy. I really hope he likes it!

I am proudly linking to the following parties:
