We were out in the garage looking through my wife's craft and sewing supplies boxes when we found this:
This is the banner for my wife's craft business. We figure it's at least 17 years old. I remembered it, but told my wife I had nothing to do with making it. She said she didn't make it either. Then it dawned on us. My mom had made it for my wife.
My mom was like that, very creative. She used felt and what I'm pretty sure is super glue I bought for her when I worked at an auto parts store in Phoenix.
It's been folded up for as long as we've been in IL.
Since the red edging looks like it was bug chewed I'm thinking of carefully stitching the appliques on with matching thread and replacing the edging with some sparkly red felt and metallic red thread we bought a couple Christmases ago.
I told my wife she needed to hang it during her craft shows as it is a home made item.
