Christmas Banner

You probably have noticed that I am in love with vintage images...
especially those old antique greeting cards
(although I also have a special place in my heart for old photos).
I have been looking for ideas to use these images.
I thought I would do a fabric variation of those adorable Christmas banners that folks are making from images printed on card stock.
I printed my images on printing fabric.
Then I appliqued them onto Christmas fabric and made my banner.
It is sewed together with vintage crocheted lace, vintage doily parts and vintage buttons to make a truly old fashioned looking Santa banner.

What a super banner. I made one for fall and now I want to make one for Christmas. I, too love the vintage images. I haven't been brave enough to print them on fabric.
