cute crochet wall pennant crochet decor pattern

I started this crochet pennant project several year ago. I tabled it because I couldn’t figure out the best way to get the words on it. I had bought a bunch of sticky-back felt letters, but they didn’t look as pretty as I had imagined.
So in a bin it went.

A while ago while cleaning out some old bins, I stumbled on my old sample. At this point, I have a couple heat transfer crochet projects under my belt, (my plaid wall hanging and my snowfall wall hanging), so I knew that iron-on vinyl would bring this project idea to fruition!

Natural fibers are imperative! You need to choose a cotton, bamboo, ect. because synthetic fibers will melt when you apply the heat transfer vinyl with an iron. I chose a 100% cotton yarn, but use what works best for you, as long as it can take the heat.

Adding Heat Transfer Vinyl to your crochet pennant

Be sure to mirror the design and cut it with the shiny side down.
I get all my vinyl at Expressions Vinyl. They have the best quality and the best prices by far!

When ironing on, you will have to remember that your piece is not flat and smooth like a t-shirt, so you will need to iron for extra time and apply extra pressure so the vinyl conforms to the shape of your stitches. When in doubt, try the tip of the letters and if they don’t stay, try ironing again. DO NOT peel all the plastic backing up if your design isn’t sticking properly.

You will not get as firm of a hold as you would with fabric, so keep that in mind. It just needs to stick well enough to stay in place. This will not be an item that will be worn or frequently laundered so a firm hold is all you need.
