100% Embroidered Iron On Letters Metallic Gold

Easy iron on letter projects are a fun way to personalize and make an ordinary project into something really special. I've had the pleasure of seeing our 100% embroidered metallic gold iron on letters on a project lead by Glen Park's Neighborhood Historical Project, an associated which is committed to rediscovering and sharing our local history. 

This incredible photo (photo credit: California Historical Society San Francisco, CA) from 1908 in Oakland, California captures the spirit of 300 bright savvy women who fought for equal rights in the early 1900s. 

According to author Mae Silver, of The Sixth Star American women gained the right to vote in 1920 but in California women gained the right to vote in 1911! When Amy from the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project contacted me about re-creating the Woman's California Equal Suffrage Association historic banner I was so excited and honored to be a part of this project. 

Here is Amy sharing the photo of the finished banner from that day. The letters are on the banner to the right.
