A Holiday Banner
I've been trying to think of ideas of what to do with the 200 feet of burlap bunting we made for the wedding and one idea I came up with was to do a little holiday banner to hang in our living room window. My favorite holiday items are of course the ones that say "peace", so I decided to use that.
First, I cut out the letters from a tomato cotton fabric by hand. Second, I cut the jute twine in between each burlap triangle, because they were over a foot apart and it wouldn't have looked too good that way. Third, I sewed the letters onto the each burlap triangle with a fairly wide zig zag stitch with a tomato colored cotton thread. Fourth, I tied the flags together and cut the ends short. Fifth, I made little slip knots on each end to hang it!
The banner fit perfectly in our living window and I'm thinking of making a smaller one for our kitchen on the left. I think "joy" might be the appropriate holiday word!
