Create a banner using Joy Embroidered Iron On Letters and old blue jeans.
I started with an old pair of blue jeans and 3" Joy iron-on embroidered varsity letters in red and blue.
I created a 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" banner pattern using grid paper and traced it onto the jeans. To add a little interest... I incorporated the seams from the sides of the jeans to use for the front of the banner. For the word "C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E" I cut 9 banners for the front with seams and 9 plain ones to use to line the back of the banner. The Iron-on Embroidered Varsity letters are sticky backed so I placed them on the front of my banners before sewing.
Next came my jar of red ribbon scraps. (I love red so much, I have a jar just for "red")
I sewed the ribbon scraps onto the tops of each banner, then sandwiched the ends between the front and a plain back and simply sewed around each banner with my sewing machine. You could also glue the front and back pieces together, if you don't have a sewing machine.
After I was finished sewing all my banners, I used a Crop-A-Dile to punch holes and add eyelets.
Use the banner anytime you feel like celebrating. JOY® embroidered letters are available at your local craft and hobby storesin a variety of fonts, colors and sizes.
