with Applique Cottage,
and Peace Wording
Written and Designed by
Janet M. Davies
This banner has non-sew applique for the objects in the designs
and the wiggly boarders. I have given the pattern pieces bellow but they
are not to size as I am sure everyone wants to make 'their version' of
it or something similar. I used fusible iron-on webbing to attach the
fabric objects to the background fabrics. I did not sew down the actual
edges of the fused fabrics. The wavy strips/boarders have ric-rack look.
The whole banner is 159 cm (63 inches) long.
Each piece of the banner is 17.5 cm 19cm (7 x 7 1/2 inches) in size.
Applique Cottage: Save the line drawing to your computer and then put into a Word
document and resize to the size you want. My
cottage is 7.5 cm (3 inches) high. The dashed lines show the walls
sitting under the roof fabric. Beads were sewn at random on the cottage
roof and 1 for each window and for a door handle to add some sparkle
Applique Tree: Save the line drawing to
your computer and then put into a Word document and resize to size you
want. My tree is 7.5 cm (3 inches) high. Sequins and beads where
sewn on the tree to add some sparkle; after the tree was appliqued into
the plain green fabric.
Around the edge of the plain panel I stitched a row of Herringbone stitch
using 2 strands of metallic thread.
Straight Wavy borders: Appliqued down sides
of the cottage and tree: I cut strips of fabric using the wavy lines above and appliqued them
around the edge of the plain panel. Save the line drawing to your
computer and then put into a Word document and resize to size you want.
My wavy boarder above is 2.5 cm (1 inches) at the widest points.
Rectangle wavy border and lettering: The
lettering is cut from velvet fabric and appliqued onto plain cotton
fabric and then the rectangle wavy boarder is appliqued on top covering
the edge of the green fabric. My rectangle wavy boarder is 2.5 cm
(1 inches). The Peace letters are 6 cm
(2 1/2 inches) high.
