The January stitch-a-long over at Feeling Stitchy is to make a couched piece. I have been wanting to stitch along with them since I started following last summer, but haven't had the time. Floresita is making a New Year's banner with couching and I loved the idea of a banner, but instead of Happy New Year, I chose to use my name. I needed something special for my sewing space afterall. So I took this stack of materials...
cowl for the letters. The banner is beefed up a bit because I fused fleece to both the front and back pieces. Floresita posted a little tutorial on how she did her couching. For mine, I marked the banner pieces with water soluable pen because I was using cotton fabric. I haven't used that type of pen on felt, so I can't say how that would work.
So that's my quick finish for today! If you're interested in a tutorial on how I did any part of this banner, let me know. I would gladly whip up another one.
Have a great weekend!
