Banner Display | Folded with a Decoratively Hand-Stitched Pocket

Folded with a Decoratively Hand-Stitched Pocket   This should be done after the banner is finished so no paint or mediums get on the stitching. Fold the top of the banner over allowing adequate room for a rod as well as the stitching.  Temporarily hold it in place with tape so that it doesn't shift while you are working. Use embroidery floss or yarn and a decorative stitch.  Tip: once you have selected the embroidery stitch that you would like to use you can pre-pierce the layers with a pointy tool, like an ice pick,  to facilitate passage of the needle.
