This is a nice and colorful way to fill in all the empty spaces of a room that need "something" while you use up all the remnants of fabrics that are almost too small to do anything with.
College dorms, first apartments, and bedrooms all make ideal subjects for this easy-to-make crafty treatment.

She is a grad student at Carnegie-Mellon in Pittsburgh and will have her Master's in Art Management in May of this year. It's been a long hard 6 years, but she's having the time of her life right now with a first apartment. :-)

I recently recieved a catalog in the mail that had everything you could possibly want for a child's birthday party. But the cost of the stuff was crazy!

I'm having a banner made for my son's high school graduation party. He's into mud mogging with big trucks big time, and I am needing help with what to put on the banner.
roll model cars in brown paint and roll onto banner. you could even shape the letters with tire tracks.
hi its all about the dirt! and or boys and their toys. my son owns an atv and dirtbike shop and these are well known slogans
How about "Just Keep Pourin' It To It", "A Little Rooster Tail Never Hurt Anybody", or "It's All About Big Boy Toys".
My daughter's birthday party is Saturday and I need about a 4 foot by 6 foot cloth banner. She is also using this as a backdrop for pictures. Her theme is masquerade and it is semi-formal. Any suggestions would be great.
Do you want to paint or write on the banner yourself? If so, go to a home improvement store and buy a drop cloth. There are some that are 4 feet wide I think. They are canvas so would be nice and heavy.
Here is what I would like a banner printed on decent paper that says: HOLLYWOODS with the Hollywood Hills background. Black and White print. Notice the 'S' on Hollywood. You can easily create your own Hollywood Hills Banner by googling 'make your own Hollywood hills banner online'. I have done so already. My problem is that I can't get enough resolution to enlarge the picture to 12 inches high and 6 feet long. I'd like the banner printed on decent paper to decoupage onto a board. Thanks so much for any info.

Call or go see a commercial printer. For such a small project it shouldn't take them much time or you much money. Good luck.
