Tutorial #40: Making club logo from felt
Today something completely different made of felt instead of a cute animal. In this tutorial I show you step by step how to make a club logo from felt. This explanation is suitable for various logos and emblems, such as your favorite football club or your own sports club.
In this tutorial I have chosen to develop two logos. First, of course, that of Willem II, my own favorite football club of which I have been a fan for years. Because I'm through #echtepostiscool Northflix, a real SC Heerenveen fan, I made the Heerenveen club emblem for her.

Get started with your felt club logo
1. Print your chosen logo in a size of your choice. Do not work too small, this will make it more difficult to embroider the letters. Print the logo several times. This will be easy later if you have to cut various parts from the felt.
2. First cut the logo completely out of the paper. This shape will become your surface. Secure the pattern with button pins and cut the base twice from the felt.
For me, 2x a circle (brown/gold) for the Willem II logo and 2x a blue background for the SC Heerenveen logo.
3. Now cut the small pattern parts from the paper and then cut them from the felt in the color of your choice. Place the small parts evenly on one surface. This way you can immediately see whether they fit properly and you will not lose any small parts.
4. Afterwards it is time to embroider the letters and some other felt parts. I use the cross stitch and the backstitch.
I embroidered the name, crown and ball on the Willem II logo. The rest was unfortunately a bit too small.
For the SC Heerenveen logo I chose to only do the letters. Pfff, I found Willem II's name difficult to embroider... but those small letters of SC Heerenveen were even more difficult. So unfortunately it's not as tight as I would like.
TIP: Do you find embroidery difficult? You can also use a waterproof marker and write the name on the felt.
5. After embroidering, stick the parts together with glue.
6. Place your surface with the logo exactly on the empty surface. Join both parts together with the blanket stitch.
NB: don't forget to tie the ribbon at the top and stop about 2 cm before your starting point to fill in your logo a bit. Are you completely done with the blanket stitch? Then your logo is ready :-).
