Let's Go Fly a Kite Wall Decor
This beautiful kite wall decor is an easy sewing project for beginners. The result is perfect for spring, and so cheery. Celebrate the warmer weather by making a sweet little kite to hang on the wall. The designer states, "I’m ready to celebrate Spring with beautiful sunny skies and just enough breeze to fly a kite. If you’re not into flying kites, you could always make a fabric one to hang up on the wall." There is something so nostalgic about kite flying, and adding a kite as one of your interior decor motifs is a lovely way to inspire you to reminisce.

Instructions for Let's Go Fly a Kite Wall Decor:
To create the kite pattern, cut the white cardstock to 9″ x 12″. Fold the cardstock in 1/2 lengthways. On the two long sides make a mark at 4″.
For the top of the kite, draw a line from the top middle fold to the 4″ mark on each side. For the bottom of the kite, draw a line from the 4″ mark to the bottom middle folds.
Cut out Kite pattern.
Trace and cut out the kite pattern on the backsides of both of the printed fabrics and the white felt.
Sandwich the white felt between the two patterned pieces. Pin into place and top stitch around the kite.
Arrange the words “Lets go fly a kite” onto the front of the kite with the shiny side down.
Cover with soft clean cloth and iron on cotton settings for 30 seconds. Turn kite over and repeat for an additional 30 seconds.
Cut the top flower and leaves off the floral applique.
Arrange the flowers on the kite and iron onto the kite the same way as the letters.
Glue rick rack around the edge of the kite.
Cut strips of fabric and tie onto a 14″ piece of twine. Glue one end of the twine to the backside of the kite.
Make a small loop with a second piece of twine and glue to the top of the kite.
