These beautiful banners build on the idea that sometimes the original intent morphs over time and can be created into another form of stitching art. Karen Melgardshagen joined a club we had created for these designs with the intent they be made into a tree skirt. As Karen’s life changed and she added two son’s, her focus was to create something for both of her son’s to have.
These banners were the perfect solution. Each banner measures 63″ x 14″. Each 9″ x 9″ diamond-shaped canvas is appliqued on to rich, deep green velveteen, trimmed in a red, green and gold cording and a lush custom tassel completes the bottom of each banner. Each banner was backed in a bright red Christmas plaid taffeta with each child’s monogrammed name.
