Madison will be making her First Holy Communion in May. The children are required to each make a banner that will be sewn together with the other communicants' banners to create an altar cloth for the altar at church. Madison is a very "blingy" girl, so I was quite surprised when she chose to make her banner very simplistic. I have been putting this project off for weeks....so today when I went to JoAnn's for materials, I found out that they were closing the store and everything was on clearance. Fabric was being sold by the bolt, so needless to say I didn't fair very well there. The good news is that they are opening a brand new store next door next month. I managed to get what I needed at Michael's and Walmart.
I used iron on letters and the cross is also an applique. I made the host and chalice from cotton fabric. I used Heat n' Bond Ultra Hold fusible webbing to attach the cut-outs to the banner fabric.
