Today my family is having a going away party for my youngest brother. He is going to the ARMY tomorrow. We are all so proud of him but I have to admit that I'm feeling a little sad about him leaving. My daughter absolutely adores him and I haven't told her he won't be home for awhile. For now all she knows is that we are going to a party for her uncle and she gets to eat cake.
I'm sure the last thing my brother wants at his family party is a bunch of crafty decorations his sister made. So I restricted myself (really really restricted myself) and only made one thing - a good luck banner.
It was a very quick project using only supplies I already had at home. I used scraps of burlap to cut triangles. Then I outlined the letters on the back of steam a seam and ironed them onto scraps from a green shirt. I cut out the letters and ironed them onto the burlap. I pinned white ribbon on the top and then quickly used a zig zag stitch to hold it all together. EASY and hopefully not too "my sister made this" looking!
