My son played little league a few years ago and I was the team parent. I really can’t stand having to pay for a new banner every year for 7 year olds just to hang it up at games. If it was something they could use for a few years, I’d understand but when the teams switch every year, it’s impossible to keep the same one. So I decided I would try to make a homemade little league baseball banner with my Cricut Explore Air™. This whole banner cost less than $10 and it came out pretty cool!
Everything is made out of felt which I got at Joann’s with coupons. I sewed two inches over on the top so we could put a rod through and I also sewed some ribbon on the top and bottom to secure it to a fence. For the baseballs, I put a bowl on the felt and traced the edge and then cut them out. For the laces I used red puffy paint. For the Cubs symbol I printed out a large poster of it and then cut it out to use it as a stencil. All of the letters I cut out with my cricut with a deep blade. The more rigid sheets of felt worked the best. The other, I ironed on some Insta Bond to make them stiffer. Then I glued everything on with tacky glue. It took a good amount of time but it was fun to do!
