I made this birthday banner from scraps of fun fabric that I already had. I finished it the day before my 3 year old's birthday. When she woke up in the morning and saw it, she got really excited and wanted to start opening her presents right then.
Some of the letters are harder to read than others. I plan on top stitching around each letter to make them stand out a little better, but I ran out of time for that before this birthday party. I'll get to it later. We'll have this banner for years.
