Gold Leather Sisters Banner


I can't wait to share the girl's whole room with you, but until then, here's a few of the details I made for the space.  The room is very soft with lots of pink, grey and gold, so I wanted to add a little splashes of black to add contrast. When everything is all pale and muted, I kind of feel like the space looks flat.  Black definitely makes a statement and gives your eye a place to land. 


I used my amazing Cricut Explore to cut gold leather letters for this little banner.  With this new machine, you can upload your own images and designs to be cut.  I love blackout lettering, so a created this SISTERS in illustrator by blocking out the center of the R.  The machine is like magic.  It cut through the leather beautifully.


Once I had my letters cut out.  I cut out a simple banner shape in black felt and stitched a sleeve at the top to fit a dowel through.  Then using hot glue, I attached all the letters and the little heart.  It looks pretty great with the girl's Dala horses and a picture of the two of them.  I have 3 brothers, which I love, but I don't think it's the same as having a sisters.  I hope these two always stay close and connected.  I think having a sister is a very special thing.
