The size of the triangles I cut out was 10.25" at the base and 13.75" tall.
Since this is to be a double-sided banner, I cut out the number of triangles I needed to spell out GIVE THANKS twice, including one for the space inbetween the two words, which worked out to 22.
Each triangle was cut from a different fall fabric, leaves, greens, browns, corn, trees, pumpkins, etc.
I had to choose some fabrics to use for the letters. I decided to go with oranges and yellows so they would show up against the fall colors
So instead of wasting paper, I quickly traced around the back of each letter in sharpie pen, so that I could then do the next step. Learn from my mistake if you do this *print in reverse*.
Rough cut out the fusible letters, then fused them to the back of the letter fabrics.
I used a tearaway iron-on stabilizer (Tearaway Magic) which I ironed to the back of each triangle covering the area where the letter was to be sewn down.
Stitched in a zig-zag around each letter. I was going to do a satin stitch but decided I liked how this looked, and the banner won't be something that I'm washing all the time, so the edges should hold up pretty well.
