Looking for some cute kids’ decor? Our felt applique swan banner would look so pretty in a kid’s room or in a nursery. And you could even craft our felt swan stuffie to go along with it!

If you’re new to embroidery, this banner is a good project for practicing different embroidery stitches. We also have a how-to video series on embroidery for beginners.

Swan Swoon

Our designer Krista came up with this felt applique swan banner—and we’re swooning over it! Just like the felt swan she designed, this banner has such beautiful detail. We’ve listed everything she used to craft this kids’ banner below, but you can always choose your own colors for your canvas fabric, felt, and embroidery floss.

If you need any help with this project, just let us know! Comment below with your questions. Or see if any videos in our how-to embroidery series can help you out at all.
