I recently made these
vintage-style pennants to celebrate special places in our family. It was so fun that I went on to make personalized name pennants for my nephew and niece.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Felt for pennant, lettering, and trim
Sewing machine or needle and thread
Here’s how to do it:
Create a template for your pennant – mine is on two sheets of scrap printer paper. It is 7.5″ high x 21″ long.
Cut out the pennant from a large piece of felt
Choose your felt colors for the letters and images and fuse
Heat ‘n Bond to one side Cut out your letters and images
Arrange on the pennant and iron in place
Cut strips of felt for the binding (optional) and ties and sew in place
Here’s how the pennants turned out. I love all the color variations!

Every year, I create personalized ornaments for our family and friends. Usually, I keep it simple with some store-bought ornaments that I personalize with markets or fabric paint. Tip: the felt ornaments are great for mailing!
This year, I wanted to make globe ornaments that would fit with our retro mid-century theme and colors of red, pink, and turquoise.
To make these ornaments, I used
The process is very simple:
I started by printing labels with the kids’ names and the year on them. I was able to fit two names on each label and then cut the labels into 2″x 2″ squares.
I then cut out and stuck each label onto scrapbook paper and punched out a circle around it. I punched a second blank circle in matching paper and glued them two pieces together.
These circles fit
perfectly into the ornaments! Add a ribbon for hanging and you’re done!
Since these ornaments would have been hard to mail, I also made some similar ones that are flat, for our friends who live out-of-town.
