I sewed and embroidered this little banner for my nephew that was born last week. Colin's sister had a baby boy, and I just had to make him something for the hospital!
The upholstery fabric in the woodgrain pattern was picked up from Hancock Fabrics right before they closed.
The monogram is Victorian Monogram Font from Boutique Fonts.
I had a small metal rod, and Colin trimmed it to the right length for me. I used twine for the hanger.
If you're interested in getting started in machine embroidery, the machine I use is a good place to start. The exact model number was sold at Hancocks, but the two models below look to be exact to what I have. I see one has a foot pedal, which mine doesn't have, but I'm not sure why it's needed. My machine will embroider a 4x4 space. Before you invest in a machine, be sure to do your research and watch videos. You need a computer and embroidery software if you want to use your machine to its fullest potential. It's one of the most fun hobbies for me!
