Instructions for Fiber VOTE! signs
Announcement of AWARDS $$$ Coming Soon !!!
( Instructions for VOTE! ART signs coming soon!!! )
1) Use heavy weight double knit polyester Note:. If you can’t find at the quilt store or Joann’s try Walmart……or…..have fun going to thrift stores and find some old skirts etc and rock on.
Or I will provide the fabric.
2) Cut a single piece of fabric 25” wide inches by 14” high making sure the stretch is on the longer 25” side.
3) Cut a “notch” at the top of both sides: 1” vertically and ½ inch horizontally, these notches will be at the top of your VOTE! sign. Fold ½” down each of the smaller sides and pin. Sew both of the small sides down a ¼ inch wide making sure to secure the stitches top and bottom. (The quarter inch seam is where the U-shaped sign struts will be
4) Use the VOTE! Templates that I will provide (or get creative and make your own letters about the same size) and cut out.
Hint: I save the page from which it is cut, tape up any cut part, and use it as a template as well)
PLEASE use ALL the fun colorful cotton cloth you want! Or use up leftover trash fabric as long as it is not sheer and will last a month or more in the rain. Pin…or… I sometimes back the cotton with light fusible and iron on so it sticks on polyester and sews quickly.
Arrange them however you like, just make sure not to sew over the 2 quarter inch side seams. Use a zig zag stitch if you have one.
I will provide all the sign supports that go into the ground.
That’s it !!!!! Easy Peasy! HINT: Production lines are GREAT !
