Believe Banner

Although I prefer to work with scrapbook papers, as far as crafts go, since I'm an Independant Creative Memories Consultant, I find the paper banners pretty, but not as likely to last in a decorative manner as long as cloth.  So I made this banner from felt on the back and letters, and then scraps of material for the print and also made my own bias tape to string them together.  I thought aobut ribbon for this, but really found it easy to cut the strips and then press them over to cover the banner top.I think that these will last much longer and could even be washed if needed.  I wouldn't advise drying them in the dryer, or the felt will do some funky things.  This whole thing didn't cost me anything to make because I had them from past projects.  I'm going to add these to the craft show in December.  What do you think?  I need some honest opinions here, because my dh is just saying "that's nice" to humor me.  It's ok, if you don't like - tell me how I could better improve them.  I'll try not to cry and be hurt!

  1. I think it's a great idea to make banners out of fabric. It's true that they'll be much more durable and probably feel more comfy too!! Cute!
