Santa Stop Here Sign

Christmas
fb-big twitter-big email-big pin-big

Give the man in red a helping hand to land with our Santa Stop Here Sign. Of course you’ve made it on Santa’s ‘nice’ list but an extra reminder for the big guy certainly wouldn’t go a miss. Why not create one for the little munchkins in your life to hang on their bedroom door? This banner from Chloe Hailwood can be hung up year after year on Christmas Eve, along with a stocking and sack. Any festive fabric would work for this project, just make sure you use a contrasting thread for your embroidery so it stands out.

Essentials
  1. Fabric, cotton, red
  2. Fusible interfacing
  3. Embroidery thread, green, white
  4. Wooden dowel rod, 12mm x 23cm
    1. Download the pattern at sewmag.co.uk, then print out and follow the cutting guide. Press medium weight interfacing to the back of red cotton. Use the pennant template and snip out two flag shapes. Copy the embroidery design to the front of the interfaced flag, positioned towards the bottom of the banner, and leave space to fold the top down later for the dowel to go through.

    2. Separate three strands of embroidery thread and sew the patterns. Use laced chain stitch for ‘Santa’ and back stitch for the rest of the lettering. Split stitch, stem stitch and couching could also be used as alternatives.

    3. Pick up the other flag, and with right sides facing, place directly on top of the embroidered piece. Sew all round, leaving a 10cm gap along the centre of the top edge for turning through. Trim the seam allowance at the corners and turn through to the right side, carefully pushing out the corners.

    4. Fold the top edge down, 3-4cm to the reverse, and hand sew all along to make a channel for the dowel. Take care to bring the needle and stitches only through the back layer of fabric so there are no stitches showing on the front. Thread through the dowel and attach a 35cm length of string to each end for hanging.
