Wow, it has been quite awhile since I posted to my Blog.
We've turned the calendar to September & now we are getting ready for Fall.
I must admit Summer is my favorite season but I don't miss the
Hazy, Hot & Humid Mid-Atlantic weather.
I've been playing around with some banner ideas. This leaf stamped burlap is available at my favorite Big Box sewing store. It makes for super easy projects. I cut a piece regular 8 1/2 x 11 notebook paper to make my pattern piece. Cutting from top corners to middle of bottom edge. Using a rotary cutter makes for quick work, but it does eat up a blade quickly. To attach to twine, I turned over the top edge of burlap and zigzag stitched it with about an inch between them. By leaving about 20 inches on each end, there is plenty to attach the banner to just about anything.
Using a beige linen fabric, I stenciled letters with Delta Cream Coat paint.
It took two coats to cover thoroughly. I made two separate banners and just hung them together across the mantel for this look.
Some smaller banners, which measured just 5 inches across the top were cut to use up some scraps. Always a good thing!
These were sewn with edges touching to have another look.
Just alittle touch of Fall here in the middle of September.
Not quite ready for pumpkins & scarecrows just yet.
