I know this may be something that may seem strange for this community, but it's something I've wanted to work on for a while. This banner is not painted, its hand hooked in a very old school fashion. It's a linen-burlap backing with hand dyed wool for all the colors. My mother got me set up (I'm now a fourth generation hooker, yes, yes lol) and I will be doing this all myself. I plan on finishing the banner with a full wooden standard as well. The completed banner will be 3ft wide and 5 ft long. I'll continue to post pictures as I go on. Thanks!
