Banner From Felted Wool Sweaters

4 Materials
2 Hours

This is a colorful and fun project, perfect for DIY parties or just for decorating your home! I suggest you use felted wool sweaters, but feel free to use regular crafting felt.


Cut open the felted sweater/s and trace around the pattern pieces with the permanent marker on the wrong side of the fabric.

Then cut out all the pieces.

Fold the bias tape in half and mark it with a pin. Then fold the middle flap piece in half, and mark that with a pin, too. These are the centers of each.

Insert the center flag piece inside the fold of the bias tape, matching up the two pins marking the centers. Then pin in place.

Continue inserting the other flag pieces on either side of the center piece, pinning them in place. Leave some extra bias tape at the ends to hang the banner.

Then sew all the way down the bias tape, close to the open edge.

Hang up your upcycled banner bunting and get ready to celebrate!
