Whether you're a seasoned stitcher or just getting started, this guide will walk you through creating a cute Halloween banner that's sure to add a touch of handcrafted magic to your celebrations.

You will need :
  • embroidery threads either polyester or rayon,
  • 1/2 yard of orange fabric, we used duck cloth;
  • 1/2 yard of fabric for the lining / backing;
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer;
  • quilter's ruler;
  • white chalk pencil;
  • rotary cutter;
  • iron;
  • #12 universal needle;
  • sewing threads;
  • wide rick-rack tape ineither black or purple colors (optional).
Embroidery:
Choose designs from the Happy Halloween Set, Halloween Cobweb Set, Halloween Bat Set.

With the chalk pencil and quilter's ruler draw a rectangle measuring about 16" x 26" on the orange fabric. Make one of the short sides of the rectangle triangular.

If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs can be helpful. If you do not, you can cut out rectangles of the same size as the designs and arrange them on the fabric within the drawn pentagon to determine the position of the embroidery. The upper design should be about 5"-6" from the upper edge.
