This project was inspired by a series of vintage themed videogame paintings I did a while ago. I used black felt for this project but you can really use any colour you have lying around. It could probably take less than 40 minutes depending on your sewing skills.Sorry about some of the bad photos,my camera isnt very good.

Description

This project was inspired by a series of vintage themed videogame paintings I did a while ago. I used black felt for this project but you can really use any colour you have lying around. It could probably take less than 40 minutes depending on your sewing skills.Sorry about some of the bad photos,my camera isnt very good.

Instructions

  1. Small 4508

    Get a piece of felt. (It doesn't really matter what colour you use,I used black to keep it looking authentic)

  2. Small 4495

    Cut the felt into a rectangle.(I cut mine 9cm x 5cm).

  3. Small 4504

    Fold the piece of felt in half.

  4. Small 4506

    Cut a piece of wire roughly twice the length of the rectangle.

  5. Small 4507

    Slide the wire in between the fold like so.

  6. Small 4505

    And either machine stitch or hand stitch(I used a blanket stitch) around all the edges till secure.

  7. Small 4509

    Bend one end of the wire into a spiral shape(thats what I did)or till secure.

  8. Small 4510

    And do the same on the other end of the wire.

  9. Small 4511

    Now your ready for the stitching. With the white embroidery thread,either machine stitch or hand sew 2 long lines,parallel to each other. (I did machine stitching to speed up the process) Then stitch 2 small lines on either side of the rectangle as pictured. (I handstitched these lines since they were much smaller)

  10. Small 4512

    Next,stitch a line through the middle(i machine stitched) Sew a very small stitch near the centre of the middle line,to represent playing ball. At the top,stitch score numbers. Lastly,thread a long piece of ribbon through one of the holes and knot off the other end through the other hole,then your done! Enjoy :]
