The other day, I sewed up a banner to hang above the entrance of my craft show booth. A length of bedsheet leftover from backing a quilt was just the right size for the top layer. Many flashy fabrics beckoned, but this quiet paisley flannel seemed to offer the right color mixture to go with my business cards. I sewed the flannel to the back of the blue sheet, then traced letter outlines in pencil. After sewing along the penciled outlines of letters, I cut them out (reverse applique).
