You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon - either use our colors or choose them to your taste,
  • duck cloth, we chose white, but it can be of any color,
  • medium-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • any trims as additional embellishments (we chose large rick-rack),
  • quilter's ruler and rotary cutter, or scissors,
  • iron,
  • #12-14 universal needle,
  • a piece of plastic mesh or thin cardboard, measuring about 9 1/2" x 10 1/2", for additional stability of the sign,
  • a small piece of Hoop and Loop (Velcro) tape.
