Is it time to decorate for Christmas yet? I thought so.
What you'll need:
3/8 yard burlap fabric
3/8 yard cream cotton fabric
Heat 'n bond iron-on adhesive
1 1/2 yards pom pom trim
2. Print out the word you'd like to use. I chose "noël" and used Lucida Blackletter font (size 470).
3 & 4. Flip the letter backwards so you're seeing through the paper and use a pencil to trace the edges onto the back of the iron-on adhesive/cream fabric. You want to press hard enough that you can see where you've traced and cut on those lines. And once you cut the letters out backwards, you'll flip the fabric over and it'll be facing the right direction.
5. Peel the iron-on adhesive backing (the paper part) off of the letters onto the burlap pieces and position them on each piece where you'd like them to go. Once you've positioned them, iron them on according to package directions (usually just hold your iron on there for 5 to 10 seconds until they've adhered to the burlap).
6. Using your sewing machine, stitch around each letter in a matching color thread. This just makes it look a little more finished.
7. Now stitch the pom pom trim onto the top of the burlap to create your banner and you're finished! (You could even use a glue gun for this step if you don't have a sewing machine.)
And happy decorating. :)
