Banners for babies:
And banners for weddings:
Adorable wedding photo by Raya Photography
I started out making them plain and square
which I like well enough.
Then I started adding random scraps to them
like vintage seam tape, lace, ric-rac and dingle-balls.
Is that my own invented word?
Or am I just a country bumkin that continues to make up my own vocabulary?
My children choke and laugh whenever I say it,
then I am reminded that it's not a real word at all,
for I say it so confidently
like it exists.
I googled it and it doesn't.
What else is one to call them?
They are dingle-balls.
I have a whole pile of them.
to make her pants longer
for she is tall.
I picture her tall and slim
wearing moccasins and jeans
with blond hair in long braided pigtails
Well, enough of my dingle-ball bunny trail! I put these banners in my Etsy shop so they could be special ordered for any occasion. Or you can pull out some scraps and make your own! This makes a great personalized gift, and can be a good project for young sewers. Uhh hemm. Christmas is coming.... And if you have any creative ideas for using up an enormously large roll of brown and creme dingle-balls please do let me know!
