Felt Name Banner

There isn’t much story to tell here. I don’t remember how this idea materialized, but it has been lurking around for a while.

Let me present: custom felt name banners (ugh, what a clunky name). You choose the background color and we work together to select a motif that can be represented in felt.

I hate the title, but couldn’t think of anything more zippy. Where are my creative powers? I’m hoping that an imaginative writer will make a better suggestion.

The background for each banner is made with wool roving from Harrisville Designs. They have 56 colors available, though I have approximately half currently in stock. These two samples measure 17″ wide by 12″ tall.

In addition to being posted in my etsy shop, these samples will be on display at Venue in Ballard.

    That’s a neat idea! I totally can see one on a child’s bedroom door, or on a teacher’s classroom door – that would come in handy at the beginning of the school year, when the kids aren’t yet familiar with the school’s layout…

    what about just “felt banners” because you could just as easily do some text other than a name – “love” “peace” and open or closed sign

    even “custom felt banners” sounds clearer. Then in the description give examples of the various kinds of text that could be felted on.

    They are very cool, Leah! A great idea. Although I’m still coveting the geode pincushion.

    I like the “custom felt banner” title. Do you also do custom colors?
