DIY Little League Pennant

Little League Pennant tutorial

Tomorrow I’m going to my niece’s softball game so I wanted to make a little something to show my support. About a year ago I made a felt souvenir pennant with my son that I thought was really cute. So I thought why not do a pennant – they’re really making a comeback!

I went through my basket of rolled up felt scraps and low and behold, crunched at the bottom was the meager remains of my blue wool felt. It was just enough to make a DIY pennant for her little league game!

Now, I will admit, I played softball when I was younger and very much enjoyed it. I’m quite excited to see her play. I still have an Oriole’s jersey from my childhood that my boys wore. My niece plays for the Mets, which luckily was an easy logo for my pennant project.

How to Make a Little League Baseball Pennant

Supplies

Felt

Dimensional fabric paint

Dowel

Computer/Printer

Fine tip marker

IMG_0538Step 1: Cut your felt to your desired size (long triangle)

Step 2: Print out the team logo to fit on your felt

Step 3: Trace the logo with a fine point marker

Step 4: Trace over your marker lines with the fabric paint – you’ll squeeze the paint out of the bottle to apply

Step 5: Let the paint dry for at least 4 hours

Step 6: Cut an additional strip of fabric to make an inverted pocket for the dowel to slide into. If you want, cut out 4 small strips of felt in the team’s secondary color (Orange for the Mets)

Step 7: Sew the pocket with the coordinating color strips (orange) placed between the two pieces of (blue) felt

Step 8: Insert the dowel

Cheer on your favorite little league player!
