I have to start by sharing that the layout and phrase are not my original idea when I started to search for ideas for the nursery I saw a similar sign, but it was a calligraphy wood sign and it was hanging with a chain on the doorknob. I wish I would have saved the image so I could source the original inspiration, but I only sketched that idea and never saved the image (I know! bad blogger!!) I can only blame my early pregnancy brain =] So if any of you know the source I'm talking about I'd love to know where that image was from.




Now to the project, for the graphics, I used the free font Flamenco created by fellow Chilean Designers of Latinotype for the Google Font Directory and the font Peoni Pro by Emily Conners, just in case you want to get creative yourself!

For the banner , used my Silhouette machine to cut out the shapes on a white flocked heat transfer sheet. After I cut the shape I iron it on a piece of green fabric. I cut a back for my flag and sewed around them, added a top to pass a dowel through, then I added rope on both ends to hang =]

Since I know not a lot of people have a cutting machine I wanted to share my graphic for those who have one and the ones that don't. So for the ones that don't have the tools to make a banner I am sharing a print in 5 different colors! so you can just print, frame and hang! or you can print it on card-stock, cut it on a banner shape, add a dowel on the back and you have your own version our of paper =]



The first one is a PNG file with the graphic so if you have a cutting machine, you can trace it and cut it =] and on the second one is a multipage PDF file with 5 different colors, to see that file you will need to have Abobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC. Without the program, you will not be able to download or preview the file. If you have troubles please visit this link, because each browser works differently.


Above you can download each separate colors individually, all of those are High-Resolution 8×11″ PDF files, save them in your computer by secondary clicking on the file once it shows in your browser or drag and dropping (depending on your computer and browser). Print using any image manager.

All files are hosted on a free server so sometimes there can be downtime (because of the bandwidth), please wait and come back later to download.

I just ask you lovelies to use this only for personal/non-commercial only, if you share them or blog then please share a link to this post and not directly to the download file, because that's considered stealing and I made this because I love rewarding my readers, Ok?. Thank you!


And remember to check out the nursery reveal for a peek at this project in use. I hope you guys had a lovely day!

    This is so cute!!!! Is it hand lettered? I just launched my business and am trying to make more hand lettered cards – I HATE turning them into vector artwork because it takes away from the hand written quality – looking for advice!
    Thank you!

      Hi Illana,

      I scan all my calligraphy at 1200 dpi as black and white art and save as a .bmp

      I am able to place this in AI and change the color using the open cursor.

      Hope this helps!

    I love this so much! I feel like a dork though, because I can’t get the .png to download; all I get when I click on it is a big black rectangle. Am I doing something totally wrong?

      Hi Melanie, I’m not sure why is that happening, but just right click on it and select the “open in a new tab or window” option to see it =]
