Birthday Project

For Ellie's first birthday, I wanted to make her a birthday banner that we can use every year for the rest of her life (if she so chooses). It took a while to finally finish it, but really I have only worked on it 2 days (did not require a lot of time, especially considering it was the first time I have ever done something like this). I think it turned out quite well!



This wasn't my first time using a sewing machine, I did make our curtains for the living room in February:

It is beautiful! What an incredible keepsake. I look forward to seeing it in person. I am excited about the bubbles,too.
