Bird Banner

Bird banner
I made a little banner to put up over our bed with some fabric scraps from Repeat, green linen fabric in different hues and Japanese double gauze cotton
that I love and wanted to be able to look at everyday.
Bedroom banner
I recycled an old linen shirt that I dyed with coffee & applied some of my birdies
with iron-on transfer paper that I bought at an office supply shop.
I bet one with kids artwork would also look great.
Hope you have a fun filled weekend :) I'll be watching a lot of soccer with Manolo.
