It's a Banner Day!

Hello!  Welcome to another Twinery Challenge post!  This time the theme is all about banners, and I LOVE banners!

I took some old jean pockets and cut them out (I have LOTS of jeans to choose from because my son can't wear a pair of jeans for more than a few weeks before the knees have holes in them!).  I die cut some felt shapes and used various colors of twine from The Twinery to add accents to the pieces and to stitch them onto the pockets.  I only stitched through the first layer of the pockets so that I would be able to put something inside the pockets if I wanted and so that the back of the denim banner would look nice & clean.

For the first pocket I threaded some twine through the eyelet border at the top & added accents on the butterfly & sun on the bottom corner.  I used a sequin in the center of the sun for added shimmer. I also used one of my favorite new twine colors EVER :) and that is the Rainbow Teal Shimmer twine that is stringing the banners all together.

I loved using the new Purple Shimmer twine on the butterfly.  

For the middle pocket I stitched around the flowers with various twines and used it to hold the buttons onto the pocket.

I used the Purple Shimmer Twine around the top of the banner to add a bow and some sparkle.

For the last denim pocket, I again used the twine to stitch on some buttons and also used the shimmer twine as an accent around the flower.

Today is the last day to play along with this "It's a Banner Day" challenge!  There are GREAT prizes up for grabs, so be sure to link up your creation using banners in some way today.

Thanks for stopping by!
