Making a colourful banner ...WIP

piecing some colourful scraps together into word length strips ...

sewing from the wrong side of the fabric around some hand drawn lettering, then cutting away the excess fabric, the next stage to finish the letters will be a fairly close zig-zag stitch around each letter ...

It's quite long, and also good fun - I have never made a banner before!

Adding the Chapter and verse, with hand embroidery and in a hoop for stability. I usually use this hoop in my sewing machine, for adding texture to owl wings! Gold gel pen was used to trace the lettering from my cartoon.

I hope to have this finished soon!
