Rag Quilt Letters
Scrap Fabrics for front
-Fabric for back (I used vintage chenille)
-Quilt batting (I used felt on the lower case letters to make it more stiff)
-Sewing machine, scissors, etc.
*****Quick correction:I misnamed the quilt batting as interfacing in the instructions. I only used quilt batting, but if you want stiffer letters to make a banner with, I suggest using a stiff interfacing(ex: JoAnn's & Walmart carry a Craft Interfacing that is really stiff) along with the batting.*****
2. Trace the letters onto the fabric that you will use for the top.
4. Cut out squares of quilt batting and backing that will be the same size of the letter.
6. If you desire, you can quilt it or just leave it.
8. Clip the raw edges. Make clips straight into every seam allowance. Stop before you reach the seam allowance.
9.Throw it in the washing machine and then the dryer. They will come out all raggedy around the edges.
