May Friday Night Sew In Results - A Birthday Banner




Handmade by Heidi
 
Since Little Man's birthday party was on Saturday I was afraid that I wasn't going to be able to fit any sewing in on Friday nght for the Friday Night Sew-In even though I had planned on working on a maxi dress I have started working on for the Summer of No Pants Challenge.  And honestly I didn't get any sewing done, but I did get some crafting done. 
 
I am not a scrapbooker.  I love scrapbooking, and really want to start scrapbooking but I just don't seem to have the time to do it.  However, I have been wanting a Cricut forever.  I think the projects that can be completed with a Cricut are endless and I really, really wanted one.  My husband kept telling me to buy one, but I kept talking myself out of it, because I wasn't sure how much I would ACTUALLY use it.  Anyhow I finally broke down yesterday and bought one which meant I wanted to play around with it instead of sewing.  Which is exactly what I did.

I made the birthday banner using the basic George cartridge that comes with the Cricut.  At this point it is the only one that I have.

I made the letters for the Shark Zone sign using the Cricut as well.  I made them too big, and the sign didn't turn out like I had in my mind but I am still learning.  I used stencils to draw and cut out the shark for the middle of the sign.

I will post more pictures of his birthday party next week, which will include pictures of his cake and awesome shark shaped watermelon.  For now I am beat!  Hope you all had a great Friday Night Sew-In!
