Making a football team logo in plastic canvas is one way of showing your support for your favorite football team. Detailed here are the steps to make a football team logo in plastic canvas.
- Buy everything you need from the needlework supplies store. Plastic canvas is also known as vinyl weave. Typically, plastic canvas is sold in sheets of A4 sizes. The number of plastic canvas sheets you will need to buy will ultimately depend on how big your football team logo is going to be. Next thing in your list would be yarns for stitching the football team logo onto the plastic canvas. Make sure that the size of yarn you buy matches the size of the holes of the plastic canvas you acquire. Of course, the colors of the yarns you will buy have to match the football team colors. Also get the appropriate size of needle for this project. Other materials you will need are a marker and a pair of sharp textile shears.
- Outline the football team logo onto the plastic canvas. Have the football team logo design ready and printed on paper. Now, cut this out and lay it on the plastic canvas. Trace the outline of the football team logo onto the plastic canvas with the use of the marker. Draw the details found within the football logo onto the plastic canvas as well. Once you are done with this, use the pair of textile shears to cut out the plastic canvas with the outline of the football team logo.
- Use continental stitches to finish off the football team logo in plastic canvas. Start sewing the outline of the football team logo first and work your way through the smaller details of the design. Of course, make sure that you use appropriate colors of yarns when doing so. It would be best to use straight line or continental stitches to fill in the areas of the football team logo in plastic canvas.
- Attach the football team logo in plastic canvas onto the desired location in your house. You can frame the football team logo in plastic canvas if you want to put it permanently onto a wall. Another idea would be to sew this onto your favorite bag or jacket. Better yet, have this football team logo in plastic canvas sewn onto a white textile to serve as the football team's flag during matches.
Make sure that you practice prudence when reproducing football team logos. Major league football teams especially those who belong to the National Football League (NFL) all have their respective team's logo designs copyrighted.
