Please stay tuned for these commercial messages

I don't usually do full on commercials for myself, so bear with me for just a moment. I want to show you something I've been working on for a while now- Birthday Banners. I've made quite a few of them now, some for my boys and some as gifts. There's the one that says "Happy Birthday" (which you may have also noticed in this post, you can see the entire thing in that picture) that I'll be hanging for each family birthday.

Then I made one for each boy with their first name on them. I'll be hanging those in their bedrooms for the other 364 days of the year.

I'm quite pleased with the way these turned out. In fact, I made two more for my best friend's boys. I love that I could make them in the boys favorite colors. They turned out to be quite the personal gift. There is a good chance that this will be my go-to gift for families with new babies.

I've added both types of banner, the Happy Birthday banner, and the Custom Name Banner to my Etsy shop, so if you want a nice family tradition, or a gift for a new baby be sure to check it out!


  1. That's a smart idea. I paid $58 so that each of my kids would have a personalized bday banner for each year of their bday and it was sort of a cheap looking, plasticky thing. Not nearly as nice as these and now they don't even want me to use them because they are so "yesterday".

  2. Those are really cute, and a great investment, since you can use them year after year. I've starred this post in my reader so I know where to find them when we're closer to planning my little guy's birthday party. I keep toying with the idea of doing some sort of etsy round up post featuring cute stuff I like; if I do, I'll be in touch. :)

  3. Wow, those look wonderful! They'd make perfect gifts. I love personalised things.

  4. Very cute! You're so talented. I wish I knew how to sew. Of course, it would cut into my reading time...

  5. How adorable! Is it...applique?? (sorry if you said in the post, I just looked at the pictures since I'm on an awful time crunch)

  6. Thanks everyone!

    Trish, yes, applique, but not polished enough for a quilt. More like quick and dirty because I don't expect to wash them.
