team spirit" pennant banner no-sew felt pillow

Show off your team spirit with a no-sew felt pillow in your favorite team's colors.
Step 1
Measure and cut two 18"x18" pieces of red felt.  
Step 2
Iron the felt squares to remove any wrinkles. For each square, fold up the edges by ½" on all four sides to create a hem/finished edge. Press all four folded edges with an iron to create a crease.  
Step 3
Apply a strip of Fabric Fuse under the hem on each side of the first felt square, then remove its backing and press down onto the fabric to hold the hem in place. Repeat this step for the edges of the second felt square. Set these felt squares aside. 
Step 4
From the black felt, cut out 10 triangles that are 2½" wide at the base and 4¼" long from base to tip. Cut the tops of each triangle with scissors, but cut the sides with pinking shears. Remove the backing from each letter and adhere one to each pennant to spell out “TEAM SPIRIT”.  
Step 5
Lay out the pennants on the felt square as in the image, and stick each pennant onto the ribbon using a piece of Fabric Fuse. The first row of pennants will spell “TEAM,” and the second will spell “SPIRIT.”  
Step 6
Cut an approximately 20" length of grosgrain ribbon and use the fabric glue pen to adhere it across the top of the first row of pennants, so that it’s just covering their tops, as shown in image. The pennants should look as though they’re hanging from the ribbon.  
Step 7
Cut a second length of grosgrain ribbon, about 24" long, and use fabric glue to adhere it across tops of the second row of pennants. Again, use the image as a guide. Let the excess ribbon on each side extend into the seam allowance, so that it will get folded into the seams that you are about to create.  
Step 8
Lay the felt square that holds the pennants on a flat surface, wrong side up (exposing the folded hems). Fold the extra grosgrain ribbon over, so that it’s lying on top of the folded hem. Apply a strip of Fabric Fuse to the hem on three of the square’s four sides, then remove the backing on all three sides. 
Step 9
Carefully hold the second felt square over the felt square and match up all edges before pressing both squares together to adhere them. Turn the squares over so that the felt square is face up.  
Step 10
Begin filling the pillow with fiberfill, pressing it into corners to fill the pillow interior. Do not overstuff.  
Step 11
Add a length of Fabric Fuse to the hemline inside the remaining open seam on the pillow. Remove the strip’s backing and press both sides together to close the pillow.
