We are having a blog hop!!! 4th of July is right around the corner but there is still lots of time to make patriotic decor with Craft Attitude. I whipped up this shabby, tattered 4th of July banner with free motion quilting using Craft Attitude as a base. This banner can be hung on the mantle, front door, or from a wreath stand over your 4th of July celebration.

PLUS, this project is also part of June's #Under5 challenge! The #Under5 challenge is to buy supplies at the craft store for $5 or less and create something with those supplies in a week. Get more info here: What is #Under5?

I shopped at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores for this month's challenge, taking advantage of a 50% off sale on remnant fabric. Here's how it all stacked up:

Purchased Supplies:

Bleached Muslin Remnant, 3/4 Yard, less 50% = $1.12

Wood Gold Solid White Poly, 1/2 Yard, less 50% = $2.19

Craft Dowels, 7/16″ x 12″ = $0.99

Sales Tax 8% = $0.34

Total Spent at Jo-Ann = $4.64

Craft Attitude 4th of July Quilt Banner by Jennifer Priest

I printed a vintage patriotic image from the Graphics Fairy onto Craft Attitude Adhesive Sheets, 8-Sheet, 8.5 by 11-Inch film and then used the image as a pattern to do some free motion quilting on the banner. And then I tore the top layer of fabric to reveal the printed image underneath and to give the banner a worn and tattered look. I used Aladine Pigment IZINK 15ml-Gold to add a bit of gilding and aged color to the ribbon, wood, and fabric elements.

So, without further ado, here is HOW I made this tattered, vintage style banner:
