Put a Banner On It

This project has been finished for over a week now and I've been meaning to post it.

Now I'm finally getting to it :)

You see, awhile ago I had pinned a few banner shirts/triangle patterns to my Pinterest DIY board.

This is one I had pinned for inspiration...which can originally be found here.

I really liked that fun banner sweatshirt and wanted to do something similar, but with minimal to no cost in supplies and with my own twist on it.

So I set out to do just that and this is what I came up with...

I started first with an old shirt I had on hand and an ill-fitting Elise onesie (in case the whole project were to flop).

Everything I used I already owned...

Homemade triangle stamp, fabric paints, cardboard (between shirt layers), and sponge brush.  Then I simply just stamped a banner pattern across the shirt/onesie.  Easy Peezy.

Once the triangles were all dry, I decided it needed a little something else, so I set to work adding small polka dots to different triangles on the banner (as seen in the first pic).

They were super fun and easy to make, not to mention I love how they turned out!

So, of course, I made E pose with me on the balcony for a photo shoot (did your mom ever make you match her?  Mine did...and I have a photo to prove it, but WOW, the bangs and glasses I'm sporting in that pic are far too hilariously embarrassing to post ;)

(we both look squinty in that photo, but I love it all the same.  I'll blame mine on those stinkin' allergies that persist and we'll blame Elise's squinty eyes on her adorably cute big grin)

I sure like that onesie more now, even if it still doesn't fit the best.

Haha.  I'm no good at the whole "pose for a picture" thing.  But there ya have it...a banner shirt and onesie.

Now go get your banner on! :)


  1. You are AMAZING!!!! The shirts look great and the pics of you two are adorable.
