crafty soccer mama



it’s soccer season {go snowflakes!! go typhoons!!} and when the parent duties were passed out my friend co and i decided to make the banner for the girls team. as if having snatching up an opportunity to be creative surprises anyone.

i’ve had a love for the whole turning kids hand prints into something else ever since the littles created reindeer’s for their xmas present to us one year in preschool. obviously, we didn’t recreate the wheel with this banner idea, and i’m sure i’ve seen the handprints turned into snowflakes somewhere during my years of blog hopping, so that’s what we did.

we simply had the girls do double layered prints of their hands and then i wrote their names next to them with a fabric pen. after that co had the idea of adding fingerprint snowballs to fill in. it took one practice. then i painted the team name in the center which we left plain, sewed a looped casing at each end of the duck cloth {with the top opening sewn shut} and we put it up on pvc pipe supports.

simple. easy. and they LOVE it.

and i must say, this is the year i am an official soccer mom running from hither to tither each afternoon. dude. i have at least 11-12 more years of this. i love it but i’m tired already.

happy tuesday!

ps : did you see the JBS mercantile sneak email for September? gorgeous!!!

    I have made a few soccer banners myself. Only have one left playing sports, freshman football, but I remember the days of trying to be at two games at once!
