Have fun, regret nothing! I made this wall banner for our rumpus room and if you can sew in a straight line, then you can make one too. 🙂 All you need is some fabric, cotton, a rod, decorative thread and a ruler.
Step 1 – Measure and cut your fabric. Mine is 20×27 inches.
Step2 – Mark 10 inches across to find the middle of the base and then mark 10 inches up either side and rule to from two joining lines.
Step 3 – Cut off these excess triangles.
Step 4 – Pin the seams and then iron them flat. I started with the pointed end, then the sides and finally the top. The top is folded down (temporarily) about 4 inches to accommodate the rod.
Step 5 – I inserted the rod and sat the banner between two chairs to make sure it was level. It’s much easier to fix any issues now rather than later.
Step 6 – Sew the seams, making sure you leave the top until last.
Step 7 – Refold the loop for the rod casing, pin in place and then sew.
Step 8 – Hand stitch, using decorative thread, the quote you have chosen.
