I'm not much of a crafter. Ok, maybe I was a scrapbooker for 10+ years but when it comes to projects, I'm definitely challenged. I'm not quite sure what drug I was under the influence of when I decided to make a fall pennant flag for my fireplace. (lol) Being craft challenged is one thing, but thinking I could actually sew something had to put me in the certifiably crazy category! To understand you would have to see how long it takes me to sew a button on a shirt. Believe me, women have given birth in less time!
Anyway, I wanted a fall pennant and I excitedly stalked etsy looking for one. I found many of them, but I really wished I could have one in the fabric I selected. Enter my big idea. I took a trip to Joann Fabrics, selected several fall looking fabrics, made a template, cut and then sewed each flag by hand. Of course, I did this by hand because a) I don't have a sewing machine and b) I wouldn't know what to do with a sewing machine if I had one. I must be truthful, I did enlist the help of my mom to sew the binding on. She has a sewing machine and I was terrified of sewing that part by hand. So without further adieu, here it is:
Not too shabby for a girl who can't sew, huh? It's not perfection, but I'm still shocked I pulled it off at all.
Here I am, off to share this over at Twice Remembered which is actually quite funny because never had I imagined I'd ever be able to share anything for Make your Monday! (That is unless I can't figure out how to link this whole thing up. Did I mention I'm computer challenged as well? LOL)
Have a great week!
