Woohoo! Another month, another Silhouette Challenge and I'm so excited. This month's theme is paper and paper just happens to be one of my favorite mediums. So before accepting this challenge, I had to think really hard about one thing I haven't done with paper. There isn't much, however, one thing that has always scared me is sewing paper. Did you know you could sew paper? I just recently (within the last year) learned I could do this and now that I've taken the leap, I can only imagine the fun things I can do with this new skill.
So, what did I want to sew? Well I need centerpieces for my best friend's baby shower and a little banner would be so cute! So, I made a pennant banner that is tiny enough to fit on top of cute little terrariums.
Cute right? Perfect for a Woodland Theme Baby Shower.
So here's how you do it.
I started with all these little pieces. I used a triangle shape and sized it to about 1.5 inch.
Then I changed the stitch spacing on my machine to about 3 and chained them together. All you do is feed them through the machine. As soon as one triangle is about done, put the other one in and feed it through. Here is a side view.
And a head on view. Just keep feeding them through and before you know it, you have a nice little banner.
I just love it! I'm envisioning doing this in seasonal colors. I can keep the terrarium the same and just change the banner!
These are going to look awesome at the baby shower!
Do you love paper crafting as much as I do? Do you run out of ideas like I did? Well, check out some of my friends to get some more inspiration.
