what’s on my desk … 10.01.08
All that’s left on my desk this week are some scraps of felt. That’s because I just finished making a very inpromptu decorative banner for my craft room. I just happened to be staring at my extra pieces of felt and wondering what I could form with them, and I felt an urge of school cheer. I’m beginning to think that I really do bleed blue and gold… or at least buy only those colors!

And here’s the finished product! All it took was some Heat N’ Bond, felt, thread and ribbon. I printed out the letter pattern (the font I used was Freshman) then cut them out to use as templates. Then, I cut appropriately sized rectangles of Heat N’ Bond for each letter and ironed it to the felt. To trace the letters, I arranged it backwards and traced with a pencil before cutting it out. The Heat N’ Bond REALLY helps to stiffen the felt and makes cutting hard edges quite easy. Once the letters were cut, I ironed them onto the pennants I had cut and simple stitched the edges for effect. :)
I am always in awe of your creativity!
I love the stitching you did (for effect). That looks awesome! Also, meant to post on your post below…your living room looks great too! The molding and the blue look great.
YOu are awesome! I heart you!
@janie – you are like my personal cheerleader!
I couldn’t even see what’s on your desk. I’m to distracted by that gorgeous table. Is that Ikea?
@Tina – It IS an IKEA glass desktop! :) The desk is a modification of bookshelves and some 2x4s… but it lets the light shine through the desk beautifully!
What a great project!
@leah – Aww thank you! :)
I *love* the banner!!
I love the desktop too & the banner looks great!
