For The Love of Banners! Project 3

Ya know how I say "I don't sew?" Well, this is by far my favorite banner, sewing, Halloween project, evah!
I thought it out all by myself! And I even remembered to take lots of photos along the way!
Woot! Woot!
I gathered a whole bunch of oranges, yellows and whites. Some I bought, others I stole from my sista! But it's not really stealing if she knows, right? You see- she has so much fabric that she offered me to take some. I'm sure her husband would be over-joyed if I would haul out a TON of it. Fat chance, Ben!
I cut the fabric in strips with my pinking shears. I love those things so much! Then I placed them onto batting with a solid yellow (bottom fabric in photo) on the back. I sewed down the strips. 
I cut out candy corn shapes and sewed around them. I decided I didn't like how bright the fabric was. There's one way to tone that down: TEA DYE! Bee-U-tiful!

 I cut out black fabric letters with my Cricut and different fonts. And cut out the word "or." I sewed the letters onto the candy corns, which took me forever because of the teeny tiny letter curves. Sew the candy corns together at the points, sew ribbon and connect the "or," then finish by making hangers with ribbon on the ends. Oh my! I could just stare at this banner all. day. long! 
I think I may even have enjoyed sewing? 
That may be going a little far...
