Just a couple more fabric name banners I've made.

I took 2 pieces of fabric, right sides together, sewed 3 sides and left one of the short ends open to make each individual pendant. Turn inside out.  Next, I printed out a alphabet from another tutorial (http://ohsohappytogether.blogspot.com/2009/07/rag-quilt-letters-tutorial.html )   and used heat'n'bond to make my letters with contrasting fabric and apply the letters to the pendant. (don't forget to trace the mirror image on the heat'n'bond).  The open end should be at the top of each pendant.  I stitched along the edge of each letter. To apply the trim I used a glue gun to attach most of the trim except for  the satin ribbon I used heat'n'bond. I used bias tape to attach the letters. A great tutorial for fabric banners is  http://www.vanillajoy.com/birthday-bunting-tutorial.html

Let me know if you need any help understanding my directions. (I'm terrible at explaining my methods).
