These cute little banners feature vintage post cards which have been beautifully reproduced in full color on a fine weave cotton fabric. Each post card measures 4" x 6" and they come in sets of four, as shown. The finishing kits include everything you will need to finish your banner as shown, including fabric (backing not included), thread, & pattern. Each of these seasonal banners is shown on a 16" wire & wood dowel hanger. All you need is one little spot on your wall and you can change post card banners as often as you like! The hangers are sold separately, and are the same size for each banner.




The Pumpkin Girls

Here’s another great Halloween banner. These four vintage post cards date from 1920 and feature adorable little pumpkin girls. Halloween is in the air with their pumpkin heads, pumpkin dresses, right down to their pumpkin shoes! Each card tells the story, such as: “Hist and Hark! Draw close and tremble. ‘Tis this night that ghosts assemble!” Scary! The banner is quickly finished in black, orange, and ivory – kit includes fabrics, DMC embroidery floss, and complete instructions.

Merry Halloween

It’s the Pumpkin People! This Mr. & Mrs. Pumpkin from 1910 try to be scary with their Halloween poems, but they’re not! They’re fun! Look at those smiles! Even with their spooky message: “On Halloween if you hear a noise, Don’t stop and look behind you. Because there’s lots of awful things – That’d just be glad to find you.” Kinda scary until you look at those smiling pumpkin faces! The kit includes 2 fabric post cards, Halloween fabric, and complete finishing instructions.

Antique Santas Vintage Postcard Banner Antique Santas
My new Christmas banner features everybody’s favorite – Antique Santas. Four new Santa post cards from 1910 show Santa riding a rocking horse, dancing with children, and decorating the Christmas tree. Rather than the traditional red or green, I’ve finished the banner using navy blue and ivory sueded cotton with a dramatic sawtooth border. This banner reminds me of a snowy, winter night - just the kind of night you might spy a small sleigh flying through the night sky! Hmmm.

Smiles & Kisses most are needed
In the winter time.
That’s the reason I have pleaded
Be my Valentine!

The banner is finished in Liberty Homestead’s red hand dyed cotton, and is topped off with red & white machine appliquéd hearts. Just looking at this fun little valentine is sure to bring a warm smile to your heart!

The Treadle Machines
Remember when sewing machines weren't quite as amazing as today's computerized models? These colorful post cards are reproduced from advertising cards from Wheeler & Wilson, Domestic, and the White sewing machine companies showing off their newest treadle sewing machines. The original cards date from 1878 - 1895. The banner is made with Liberty Homestead's hand dyed cottons in blue & white and is finished with a scrappy border. This would be a great little addition to any sewing room!

Halloween
I love to decorate for Halloween! These four vintage post cards are from 1910 and are all done by the same artist. The boys & girls are having a great time with their jack-o-lanterns, getting ready for fun & games on Halloween. The banner is finished with an orange Halloween print. The yellow sawtooth border made from Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cotton adds the perfect touch for this spook-tacular banner.

Thanksgiving
This set of whimsical post cards is from 1909. These are from the same artist as the Halloween post cards and feature more of her little boys & girls. This time the kids are enjoying the fall harvest and sending you “Hearty Thanksgiving Greetings”. The black sets & borders showcase the individual post cards and provide the perfect background for my Flying Geese column on the left side. These geese are made with my hand dyed cottons, starting with “pumpkin pie” at the top, and gradating down through the golds to finish with khaki.

Here’s a flash from Christmas past! These four wonderful vintage Santas are from original post cards dated 1910. The four scenes show Santa delivering his toys to good little boys & girls. The three ivory sections show Christmas trees made with fusible appliqué, using Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cotton. The banner is then finished in Christmas green.

Easter Eggs
In this banner we have 4 “Easter Greetings” post cards from 1907. Each pair of rabbits is popping out of a different color Easter egg. The banner is made entirely from Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cottons. Each post card is bordered in a different color, matching the Easter eggs. The sets & borders are a beautiful, soft purple, with all colors repeated in the scrappy border. You’ll have enough fabric left over on this one to also make the backing.

Bathing Beauties
Celebrate the summer with a look back at these 1907 bathing beauties. These wonderful women are enjoying a day at the beach, dressed in their “daring” beach costumes. One thing for sure – they don’t need to worry so much about a sunburn! The banner is finished entirely with Liberty Homestead’s hand dyed, sueded cotton. A soft blue for the borders pulls out the rich colors in the post cards. And I liked the Flying Geese column on the Thanksgiving banner so well, I did it again. This time I used 7 gradating shades of green, ending in soft sea foam greens – what else for the beach! This banner is also shown on a 16” wire & wood dowel hanger – this time with a “wave” motif, rather than the stars.
