A Banner for the Blue Wall - Ένα πανό για το μπλε τοίχο

Sharing is caring!

Hope everyone is well today and you all had a great weekend. I am continuing on my journey to finish my daughter’s Blue room. We are in the final stretch now.  Adding the details and getting rid of all the nasty pink. I had one wall that was looking kind of empty and I also had these beautiful swatches of fabric …well actually the dark blue was a linen skirt, but no one ever wore it. And I thought I’d make a banner for the blue wall. 

Ελπίζω όλοι να είστε καλά σήμερα και να είχατε ένα καλό Σαββατοκύριακο.  Εγώ  συνεχίζω το ταξίδι μου να τελειώσω το μπλε δωμάτιο της κόρης μου. Είμαστε στην τελική ευθεία τώρα. Προσθέτω λεπτομέρειες και 

απαλλάσσομαι από όλα τα δυσάρεστα ροζ. Είχα έναν τοίχο που έμοιαζε κάπως άδειο και είχα επίσης αυτά τα όμορφα δείγματα υφάσματος … στην πραγματικότητα το σκούρο μπλε ήταν μια λινό φούστα, αλλά κανείς δεν το φ,όρεσε ποτέ.

Now if there is one thing you all know about me, its that I love to reuse what I have at home.  And naturally this was no exception.  I cut them into triangles.

Τώρα, αν υπάρχει ένα πράγμα που όλοι γνωρίζετε για μένα, είναι ότι μου αρέσει να ξαναχρησιμοποιώ ότι έχω στο σπίτι. Και φυσικά αυτό δεν αποτέλεσε εξαίρεση. Τα έκοψα σε τρίγωνα.

Then I flipped them over and sewed the two sides, up to an inch from the top.

Τότε τα γύρισα από μέσα και έραψα τις δυο πλευρές, μέχρι δέκα εκατοστά  από την κορυφή.

You can also glue them together if you don’t like to use needles and thread. I personally love to hand sew.  Fun fact:  I have a sewing machine but am too lazy to take it out and so I do most of my sewing by hand. 

Μπορείτε επίσης να τα κολλήσετε μαζί, αν δεν σας αρέσει να χρησιμοποιείτε βελόνες και κλωστή. Προσωπικά αγαπώ να ράβω στο χέρι. Φαν φακτ: Έχω μια ραπτομηχανή, αλλά είμαι πολύ τεμπέλα για να το βγάλω από την θήκη του και γι ‘αυτό κάνω το περισσότερο ράψιμο με το χέρι.

Now I flip them over and this is very important,  iron them so they become nice and stiff and take a  triangular shape, Here is where we get to hide the imperfections by ironing the triangle to our desired shape. 

Τώρα το ξανά γυρίζω και αυτό είναι πολύ σημαντικό, το σιδερώνω έτσι ώστε να γίνει ωραίο και σκληρό και να παρειά το σωστό τριγωνικό σχήμα, Εδώ είναι όπου κρύβουμε τις ατέλειες με το σιδέρωμα στο επιθυμητό σχήμα.

And now to hang them on that forlorn wall.  I took a piece of twine (of course, how could I go for so many posts without using twine!!)  and folded it in two. Then I folded the pieces of fabric over the twine and sewed the tops to close them over the twine. 

Και τώρα να το κρεμάσω στον απεγνωσμένο τοίχο. Πήρα ένα κομμάτι σπάγγο (φυσικά, πώς θα μπορούσα να περάσει τόσο πολύς καιρός χωρίς να χρησιμοποιήσω σπάγγο !!) και το δίπλωσε στα δύο. Τότε δίπλωσα τα κομμάτια του υφάσματος πάνω από το σπάγγο και έραψα τις κορυφές να τους κλείσει πάνω από το νήμα.

And because I had lots of fabric left over I covered a few pillows.  

Και επειδή είχα  ύφασμα που έχει απομείνει κάλυψα μερικά μαξιλάρια.

It is not perfect, it looks kind of scrunched at the ends but I have extra twine so I can let it out and give more curve to the banner. I actually prefer it this way. 

Δεν είναι τέλειο, φαίνεται κάπως τσαλακωμένο στις άκρες, αλλά έχω επιπλέον σπάγγο ώστε να μπορώ να το αφήσω έξω και να δώσω μεγαλύτερη καμπύλη προς τα πανό. Εγώ πραγματικά το προτιμώ 

έτσι .

A bit of fabric can make all the difference. And that is how we can keep a wall from being lonely.

Ένα κομμάτι ύφασμα μπορεί να κάνει όλη τη διαφορά. Και έτσι μπορούμε να διώξουμε  την αίσθηση μοναξιάς από τον τοίχο.

They look great! I always think I'll do something like this but then I never do. Maybe the next linen skirt I don't wear will have the same fate as yours.

Stella, I keep clothes around for their fabric value... turning into a hoarder now... In this case, it was a good idea because the fabric is very pretty (photos do not do it justice). Thanks for stopping by!
