I recently made this Christmas banner for an upcoming craft show I am doing - I wanted something festive to hang on the front of the table - so this is what I came up with. I am quite pleased with how it came out and thought I would share how I did it with you all.

Find some wool sweaters and felt them in the wash.

Cut out some festive shapes

Cut the shapes you chose out of the wool sweaters - because they are felted they shouldn't fray.

Cut out some strips of sweater scraps - 3- 5 inches long

Pick a fabric for the binding

Fold the binding over and sandwich the shapes inbetween, sew closed.

Very cute!  If I could figure out where to get some wool sweaters I would have to give this a try!  Maybe I should try it with fleece...
