Our local Little League uses professional baseball team names and logos for the little guys and this year my son was on the Cardinals t-ball team.  As a thank you for the coach I purchased this wool pennant with the St. Louis Cardinals logo on it and hand stitched the kids' names and a little thank you to the coach on it.





I printed the names from the computer first, then traced them onto a tear away stabilizer, pinned them to the pennant and stitched them on using backstitch. 

Nothing fancy as far as stitching goes, but I love when I can use my embroidery for a man's gift that I know will be appreciated.

Thanks for looking.
