I got this grand idea in my head to make a welcome home banner for my sister on her return from Italy. Silly me though, I can't just make something simple or out of paper, I have to make it complicated. I decided to make it out of fabric and when I realized I had great fabric to make it with I was even more excited. I have a stash of vintage feed sack and old dress fabric and such that was my grandma's. I freehand cut out the letters and appliqued them on. It took me the better part of a night but it went pretty fast. She loved it when she came home and now I'm tempted to make something similar for myself.
