One thing that I had to make for Saturday's pop-up shop was a sign with my shop name on it. I thought about ordering something. I thought about printing something. But the short time line and my small printer didn't really allow for either.
So I decided to make a small flag banner with a triangle for each letter. I found sturdy gray felt and then picked regular yellow felt for the letters. (The colors match the backside of my business cards.) Monday night, I made a triangle template out of paper and then free hand cut the letters. I have a super simple logo font (Helvetica) so it wasn't too hard.
I machine stitched the letters onto the triangles with white thread and then folded down the top of the triangle (I left a border for this purpose) with bakers twine inside it and sewed that in place too. It was way easier than it might look. And I am super happy with the results.
Are you local? Come see the sign and shop fun handmade goods this weekend!
PS : HAPPY DECEMBER. I feel great about this month.
PPS : these photos were a good excuse to change up my etsy banner.
