Selecting Banner Fabric
Making cloth banners for church is a long term investment as they will not go out of style and if made properly, from good quality fabrics, will last a life time.
  • I use blended colors of batik for backgrounds.
  • Landscape fabrics such as those with trees, bricks, clouds, stones, etc. work really well into designs and pictures.
  • Cotton prints and solid colors also work well. These fabrics can be used to make applique' items in the main portion of the banner fabric or to make pieced borders.
  • A variety of fabrics will create visual interest to your cloth banner. Mix cottons, shiny satins, Lame (gold and silver), fur, and pile fabrics. You wouldn't normally use these fabrics together, but they work well to create pictures on your cloth banners.
  • Use cotton batting. Polyester gives the banner a puffy look. Cotton helps the banner to hold its shape and prevents it from becoming wavy when it is hung.
  • Do not preshrink any of your banner fabric. It will cause the fabric to loose its original 'sizing' which enables the fabric to keep its shape. Banners aren't laundered, they're vacuumed and stored in airtight areas to ensure longevity.
