Hello Everybody, It is a raining evening in South Florida and I am hoping it will cool off a bit! Yesterday the heat index was 100 degrees! Where is Fall now? not here, I am afraid. But I have tried my best to get into the Autumn spirit by making some crafts for the upcoming Holiday Arts and Crafts Shows! Above are some of the cloth pumpkins I have made.
A new craft I am adding to my line of items is BANNERS! Above is a pendant banner of Fall fabric with little acorns hanging off the points. I accidentally deleted the view of the whole banner, but you can get some idea of how cute it looks.
This summer when we visited England and Northern Ireland, I saw so many pendant banners, many with the Union Jack flag, others of different fabrics and colors. They looked so festive, so I came back with the idea to make lots of cute banners to sell at the crafts fairs. The Give Thanks one above is paper and I actually bought it to use in my Thanksgiving decor, but the others here I have made.
Here is a Christmas one with some cute Christmas fabric and little bells sewn on the points. I think it would be really pretty across a mantel or even on porch railings.
