Fun with Felt!

Have you ever played around with felt? I use it for all sorts of fun crafts and right now I am working on a felt playhouse. I will be documenting as I go, but the finished product will be a castle. Of course, castles need scrolls and what better way to tie them than with ribbon?

You will need:
One piece of felt, I chose white. Cut into two equal pieces cutting straight down the long side. 
2 peices of ribbon about 12 inches long
and a fabric marker or sharpie
 Pin your ribbon to the backside of your felt. I pinned the middle of the length of ribbon down in the middle of the felt, but in the future will pin down mid-ribbon near one edge.
Stitch a rectangle
Write your letter on the right side of your felt. I didn't like how the Sharpie wrote, and will be trying a fabric marker next time.
Finish it off by tying the two ends of the ribbon together and you are DONE!
Fun and simple right? I am so excited to work more on this playhouse. I think the finished product will be wonderful!
