Embroidered Happy Birthday Sign
I found these oversize stiff thick felt balloon shapes for under $3 each at Walmart, since it's felt I knew it would embroider well... so I grabbed two of them
Then I added "Happy" and "Birthday" to them in a thick oversize font.
I floated them in the the hoop, attached with spray adhesive and watched them pretty closely.
Then for the streamers I used Aleene's Tacky Glue and oversize ric-rac.
