With Valentine’s just around the corner (only a month away), with a super-easy no-sew project, we are kicking off the month of love a “Je T’aime and/or “Love” pennant for the one you love! I love this project as it’s a little less sugary sweet for the guys for a gift, and would also just make for a nice little something for yourself (for your home office), or maybe even your teen’s room. Whatever you use it for, it’s a fun project and we hope you’ll try it out! Check it out below!
No-Sew “Je T’aime” Pennant
This is a simple project that requires no sewing machine. Everything is done with a glue gun and iron-on embroidery letters. And it can be done in less than an hour!
What you’ll need:
1 large piece of felt (2′ x 1′)
1 small piece of felt (12″x 10″)
Iron-On Embroidery Letters (available at any craft store) to spell out what you’d like. (Note: for the accent in “Je T’aime” I just cut out a small black triangle, and glued it onto a larger white triangle – remnants from the backing of the iron-on embroidery letters)
2 foot long piece of newspaper
With a pencil, draw a pattern of a triangle out on a piece of newspaper. Measure it to be (24″ wide and 9″ high). Cut out the triangle.
Pin the cut out pattern you just made from newspaper onto the large piece of felt. Cut out the felt around the pattern. Set aside.
From the smaller piece of felt (the black in our case), cut a 1/2 inch wide by 9 inches wide piece for the long border (angled on each end to the shape of the triangle. And then cut 4 small pieces (the black in our case), 4 inches long by 1/2 inch wide.
Hot glue on the first small (4″) piece about one inch from the top of the 9 inch side , and then glue the second small piece on top of it. Repeat at the bottom. Then hot glue the long 9 inch piece on top to cover them both.
Line up your letters and center how you would like. Then remove the sticky back and apply!
Send to your Valentine! Or keep for yourself!
