Team Mom Duties


 

Hi all! Wow I can't believe how long it has been since I've been on here! My friend encouraged me to start blogging again with all my crafting ideas so here I am! Can I just say I have missed having a place to show off all my projects and goodies! And you guys are in for a treat because it only will I start to post again about different craft ideas but I will also start uploading free digital files of crafts, home decor, silhouette cut files, etc. I look forward to sharing these all with you!

For today I wanted to share a little bit about my latest project...Little League Baseball Banner. So kiddo #2 (we have 3 kids now!!!) is in his 3rd year of baseball and is loving it! My hubs stepped up to be the manager, his dad stepped up as assistant and I stepped up as team mom...were taking over!!! Bahahaha!!! 

Anyway so I'm sure you've all seen the new fangled fancy vinyl banners many sports teams have. While those are great I love me some good old fashioned hand made felt. Not only do I love the look of it but they are so much more cost effective!

So I ran to Joanns and purchased a yard of black felt, a yard of yellow, a yard of white, and a quarter yard of brown. I made sure to buy them on sale so I got them for $11.67. Add the paint for $10 and the ribbon for $5 we now have a custom handmade banner for under $25!

The banner itself took a few hours a day for a few days to design and assemble but luckily I had my handy silhouette cameo to cut all the shapes for me. Then my husband and I hot glued them on and I hand painted the names, etc. I am so happy with how it turned out and it's going to look great all year on the field!
