Materials 

  • Felt or your chosen fabric
  • Needle & thread
  • Ribbon or chain
  • Hot glue gun + Glue
  • Shrinky Dinks (Available at any craft store)
  • Printer
  • Pencil Crayons
  • Scissors
  • Pattern (found here and here)
  • Straight Pins

 Although the list of materials may seem overwhelming this tutorial is actually quite simple.
STEP 1

Print out the pattern. For this step you have your choice of patterns, Choice 1 or Choice 2. You can also free hand or create your own.

 

STEP 2

After you print your pattern cut it out.

 

STEP 3

Print out your team logo on the Shrinky Dinks.  For this step, I copy and pasted 3 logos on a word document prior to print out. Remember when picking out your logo to print that when you bake them they will shrink.

 

STEP 4

Once you print out the logo you might want to colour in the logo with the pencil crayons. This is not a vital step but it really helps the colours on the Shrinky Dink pop when you bake them.  Again this isn’t a mandatory step but it is recommended.

Put some hot glue on the edge of the ribbon that you just put through the hole. Now fold the ribbon back onto the ribbon creating a loop. Do this on each piece of felt.
