My husband is a Borussia Mönchengladbach fan, while my nephew is a Borussia Dortmond fan. Apparently these things are very different. Something I don't quite understand.
Well, I thought I might manage cool Tante (German for Aunt) Kelley this year for Christmas if I made a custom fussball fan scarf for my nephew, but I needed to find an image or pattern to imitate.
Well, I found this beaut of an image.
It is a little different, but still contains all the important logo stuff.
Now what was I going to do with it?
I bought 2 yards each of non-pill black fleece and bumblebee yellow flannel at Joanns. Each fabric was cut to approxiamately 11in. by 2 yards.
When I created my freezer paper stencil, I cut every 2 rays as one, since I didn't want to work on it FOREVER. :) I think it still turned out really well.
Oh, yeah she is beautiful. I am fairly impressed with my exacto knife skills.
As you can see, I applied the logo to the yellow flannel, which means since Borussia Dortmund's colors are black and yellow, I need some black fabric paint.
Look at those crisp lines. I even impressed myself with this one.
I flipped her inside out and ironed the edges to get her ready for top stitching.
I love the finished product. I just hope my nephew appreciates it, especially since I forced Onkle Mario to model a scarf for the opposition. It was a great sacrifice he has made for my little blog, and I love him for it.
The sacrifices you make for love.
