I made several banners for my daughters wedding. I made some in blue and some in green, since those were her colors.
I cut out the colored fabric, leaving an inch on each side of the burlap. I used a cup to round off the edges. You can make a pattern and then use it for each piece, so they'll all be the same size. I then cut the other fabric and used wonder under to attach it to the colored fabric.
I used a zig zag stitch to attach the fabric.
I attached the letters with wonder under and then used a zig zag stitch to attach them in the center.
I added a zig zag stitch to the burlap, to keep it from unraveling. Then, I folded them over about an inch. This is where the ribbon or burlap will go through. They just need to be tight enough so they won't move around.
I attached the fabric to the burlap and again used wonder under and the zig zag stitch.
I used matching ribbons to hang them. I love the way they came out. Here's a few of the ones I made. I liked having the colored fabric on them. It just added a little more color for some of the tables.
