You can see from this image that the letters just did not stand out and couldn't be read from very far away.

Birthday Banner Redo
I made this birthday banner last year from a tutorial over at polkadotchair.com . I cut the triangles with pinking sheers out of my fabrics then drew out lettering and used wonder under to iron them on. Then I sewed it to this big ric rac that I had in my stash. It was a pretty quick project and I think it turned out great. I put it away with the birthday decorations. I got it back out and thought, oh my goodness, this needs improved upon. I do not like to redo projects that I have made, and normally do not. I decided to make an exception to this project. I am on an applique kick right now. I decided to use an applique stitch and stitch around the letters. It took a bit of time but it was worth it.
