i hope you've all enjoyed the blog so far. i'm pretty excited about this next project i have to share with you.
i like to glean ideas from all across the web, and one of my favourite sites so far is Moda Bake Shop. my life changed forever when i found their awesome site. there are too many fantastic projects there to mention. i'm sure i've made half a dozen already.
while perusing their projects, i came across the Hugs & Kisses Valentine Banner. i fell in love instantly. someday, i would make my own banner to hang across my mantlepiece (at the time i had no mantlepiece... well, now i do!)
it makes my fireplace and living room look very seasonal for one of my favourite days. my banner is a little bigger than the one featured on the Moda Bake Shop.
i found these fabrics at Joann crafts - i love that they have seasonal fabric on sale. they may not be top quality for quilting with, but they are fun to use for the budget conscious crafter of seasonal decorations.
SO... on to the giveaway:
i'm going to give one lucky reader enough fabric and felt to make a banner just like mine! the fabrics are cut to size, however the curved edges haven't been cut out. the felt will be cut into circles, with enough left to cut out your letters. the only thing left out will be thread to sew it with, and any button embellishments you might like to add to the binding strip (as seen on the original Hugs & Kisses Banner tutorial).
