New Banner for my Craft Show Booth

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).
Fancier fonts certainly appealed to me, but I decided to go with the most readable lettering.

Now I just need to iron it, slip it into the EZ-Up banner sleeve, and roll it up until the Strangefolk Festival.
