"Scripture" Banner Patterns

Note:  We offer banner patterns for you to make and create your own banners. 
This is a new set of banners I recently finished designing and then sewed together with a group of ladies from church. They are simple, yet beautiful and eye catching. The scripture on each verse banner is a mixture of block and script fabric letters making it stand out. Each pieced strip is colorful, and helps draw the eye to the verse. I encourage you to take making banners for your church on as a ladies sewing project.

Making Fabric Letters
Descriptive scenes and symbols aren't the only way for making banners. Christian banners often have scripture references or quotes. Getting these fabric letters to look even and professional can be a challenge.
  • If you're a novice at banner making, choose letter fonts with straight lines and a block style for an easiser time cutting. If you've some experience, try a fancier font style.
  • There is an art to cutting smooth letters. Avoid short, choppy edges. Fully open your scissors so you can cut smoothly and slowly. With open scissors, you will use the entire length of the blade. You will need a steady hand and sharp scissors.
  • Letters that have centers, such as a, e, o, b, d, g, etc., should have the centers cut out first. Then cut the top edges and finish with the bottom edges where there are fewer curves. Basically, begin with the most difficult cuts and work your way to the straight lines.
  • Placing is essential on a banner. You don't want off-center wording. Use a sliver of soap or washable marking pen to draw a verticle line down the center. Then, draw horizontal lines that are perfectly square to the verticle line, and placed where you want the bottom of the letters to be lined up. Lay all letters out to make sure they are exactly where you want them before attaching.
Remember, banners are meant to be a beautiful addition to a foyer or sanctuary, just like a work of art. Take care in placing fabric letters so as to add to the banner, and not draw your eye toward crooked or poorly placed lettering.
