Just released today is my In The Hoop Alphabet Pennant design. This set is going to provide so many fun projects and there is a backstory to it. Last year at this time (In fact this exact week), I had plans. We all know where we were and what we had going on the moment we realized everything had changed with the pandemic. This design has been ready to go for a year but I just didn't feel like it was a good time to put it out yet. My original thought was it would be perfect for retail spaces or classrooms. Since that was in my mind I didn't expand enough to realize it would be perfect for home offices, or kids' bedrooms. Maybe you would like to make signs for medical facilities, retirement centers, thank your local fire department or essential workers at the grocery store. So, a good lesson learned. Sometimes waiting a bit and looking at something in a different time will give you perspective. Let's take a look at what is in the set.
Each one of the pennants will complete in one 5x7 hooping. Customize them to your space with fabric and thread. You can use prints, solids, stripes, polka dots, you name it.
The hangers are created by using 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon. Just another material that you can change up. How about a sports theme for a bedroom? Or dinosaurs? Maybe princesses? Unicorns? Once you get started, you may not stop. This one set could potentially keep you occupied for a while.
Here are all of the Letters, Numbers and Punctuation that come in the Pennant Set. That is a lot of embroidery design possibilities!
Here is a finished pennant so you can see the size.
For a different view next to my hand you can see that they are bright and cheerful. The text is large enough to see across the room.
Look at all of the different colors I used to make these pennants. If you have remnants in your stash like me, this is a great way too use them up. Those special life events are still happening even though we are social distancing. If you create pennants for someone you can celebrate via remote and hang your sign up. Have I got your creative ideas going yet? I have filmed a tutorial video you can watch below that will take you through the entire process.
I hope you are well in your corner of the world, have enjoyed this post, share what you learn and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work.
