Birthday Banner

I've been meaning to make a birthday banner for years and finally got around to it. I got the chevron fabrics on sale at Joann's during 4th of July weekend. To make the banner I just cut two 7 by 7 inch squares for each letter. I already had the letters cut out in my unfinished projects tub (I have no recollection of cutting them out, but it sure did save time). I then appliqued the letters on, sewed the squares together with a 1/4 inch seam allowance, turned the squares right side out,  ironed the squares, and then sandwiched the top of the squares in between bias tape. I absolutely love it and it goes perfect with the balloon wreath I just made.
