Another crafting first...
To create this fun Toy Story character pennant banner for Little Man's birthday party, I used fabric transfers for the first time! I had been wanting to try this for a long time, and Little Man's birthday seemed like the perfect occasion. This was a piece-of-cake project--and no sewing is required!
I created a triangle pattern using cardstock and cut out several red, yellow, and blue pennants out of felt. (Once again, I have found a fabulous use for my felt scraps left over from my quiet book!)
You can find a package that looks just like this at your local office store or even Wal-Mart! You can find dark or light fabric transfers. I chose dark for this project.
I simply found images of our favorite Toy Story characters on Google images, printed them out on the fabric transfer paper, and cut them out.
I followed the instructions on the package to iron the characters onto the felt using a piece of transfer paper in between. Then you just peel it away, leaving the character. It's like magic!
I did sew the ribbon across the top, but you could use a hot glue gun just as easily. (Again the cowprint matches Jessie and Woody). We hung this banner in our kitchen. I have to admit that we still haven't taken it down. Oops! But Little Man sits and names all the Toy Story characters while he eats. So cute!
Guess what?! I finally have my party photos edited...
So look for a post about the entire Toy Story party tomorrow--it's the final shebang of my Toy Story birthday party ideas!
