I made a video of my Noel banner for a gift for the holidays. Will load it in the next few days. Don't laugh either!
Here are the items you need to get started. Iron on paper backed web. Fabric squares about 6" in size. As many as letters you use. I made 4, one each n, o, e, l. Scraps of lace and gauze, tea dyed. 4 yards of 2 different colors of ribbon or seam binding, 8 yards total. Gold thread for machine top. Cream for the bobbin. Gold ribbon yarn for couching. Small piece of green silky fabric for the letters.
