I've spent the entire summer taking pictures with my new Fuji Instax Mini camera, that produces these darling little polaroids.
I've had a stack sitting in my office for some time now and decided it was time to do something about it. So I stitched up this polaroid banner.
Cut out a bunch of shapes from a paper punch.
I used a heart, because I LOVE to take pictures, but flowers would be really fun too.
Gather all the pictures you have laying around your house. They don't have to be polaroids, but they'll hold their shape better if they are small.
First, pull your thread so you have a long tail to hang your banner from, then take one of your shapes and sew right over the top of it, (the more textured the paper, the harder it is to sew over). Pull the tail while your sew a few stitches into thin air. Next, simply set another heart down and repeat. I like 3 or 4 shapes in a row.
Now sew right along the top of your photos and then sew another series of shapes.
It's that simple. You now have a banner to hang in your babies nursery, as decor at a party, or in your front room.
You'll just be happy to have those pictures out of a box and on display.
