My first few stalls had a banner of printed punched paper flowers for a sign, as there wasn’t time to craft something more suitable.
But they got creased and bent and looked, well, a bit rubbish.
So they were replaced by a printed vinyl banner that I got for free because I bought some business cards.
But I don’t like it much.
It’s ok, I suppose. But it’s made of vinyl. *shudder*. Practical maybe, but yucky.
Also the photo resolution wasn’t quite high enough, so the banner is a bit pixellated. And the typeface isn’t quite right (best of a limited selection).
Time to craft something more suitable.
I have made appliqué lettering before and love the look of it.
So this was yesterday’s project…
It was going to live on my bed.
I was going to have a white background for my sign.
But I considered. I want the message to be both pretty and professional. (Like my wares).
And what could be more important than putting your best face forward for the public?
So shouldn’t I use my best fabric?
But, as usual, I’m not quite decided yet…
White or patterned? Patterned or white? White makes a good stall background for my colourful cushions. But pattern is what I do…
Which do you prefer?
