Fabric Friday

Welcome to another installment of Fabric Friday!  This JOY banner whipped together pretty fast for me thanks to the help of the Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die.  I cut six rectangles of the Candy Cane Designer Series Fabric and three rectangles of Fabric Adhesive larger than the pennant shape.  With the Fabric Adhesive I fused two of pieces of fabric together and repeated that with the remaining four pieces.  Once I had my three fused rectangles I ran them through the Big Shot to cut the pennant shapes.
To string my pennants together I stitched a long strip of Twill Tape across the top of the pieces.  The JOY letters were cut from Red Glimmer Paper and the Serif Alphabet Bigz Dies.  Just a few buttons, snowflakes, and rhinestones to finish off the banner and I was done!  It's the perfect size for embellishing a mirror or maybe a wreath.

  1. How COOL is this! (I didn't know the Big Shot cut fabric too!)

  2. Your banner is gorgeous! That Candy Cane Lane Paper was my favourite last year and I'm still hoarding some. I like how it matches with the red flimmer paper. Thanks for sharing!

  3. That is so cute, I need to make one of those. I really like you Fabric Fridays! You have some really great ideas. Thanks for adding it to my Winter Wednesday Christmas Blog Hop!


  4. Fabulous idea Elizabeth to use the fabric to do a banner. I will have to check back on your Fabric Fridays.

  5. I love the fabric banner idea, though I'm not too crazy about sewing! Gorgeous letters, buttons and other embellishments!

  6. Love your banner. It's beautiful! TFS. :)
