Supplies to Make the Love Blooms Tabletop Banner

Steps to Make the Love Blooms Tabletop Banner

Press the Thin Fusible Batting to the wrong side of the Front.

Hoop Cut-Away Stabilizer. Insert new needle. Thread top with thread to match fabric (darker thread used for demonstration purpose to show stitching). Insert 60 wt bobbin thread.

Insert hoop into the machine and sew Stitch #1, the positioning stitch.

Remove the hoop from the machine and place it on a flat surface. Place the Front/Batting right side up over the positioning stitch. Tape to secure in place along the top and bottom of the Front.

Insert the hoop into the machine and sew Stitch #2, the secure stitch.

With the hoop still in the machine sew all the flowers and words, Stitch #3-11.

When finished stitching the flowers and words, remove the hoop from the machine and place it on a flat surface, use EZ Hook n’ Snips to clip any jump threads.

Fold one cork loop wrong side together heightwise.

Place the two raw edges 1/2″ over the top line of the secure stitch and 1/4″ from the upper right corner edge. Tape to secure in place.

Repeat the other loop on the upper left corner edge.

Place the Back right side together over the Front, secure the top and bottom with tape. Sew the final stitch, the construction stitch.

When finished stitching, remove the hoop from the machine and the materials from the hoop.

With the All-Purpose Craft scissors cut 1/4″ around the entire outside except leave 1/2″ for the opening. Miter the corners.

Before turning the Banner right side out, fuse a piece of Fusible Web on the Back opening seam allowance.

Use the EZ Point & Turner to turn the Banner right side out.

Remove all tape and the paper from the Fusible Web.

Use the point turner to get nice crisp corners and give the entire banner a good press.

Hang on the Tabletop Stand! When you make yours, please share a photo and be sure to tag me @SookieSews and @BERNINAUSA when you do!!
