Add Buttons (If Necessary)

For shirt pockets without buttons or snaps, add them with needle and thread.

Attach Numbers

Trace numbers to felt using stencil as a guide. Next cut numbers out using fabric scissors. Once each number is cut out, attach to the front of a pocket using iron-on adhesive tape.

Insert Banding

Fish the 3/4-inch canvas banding through flaps in the back of each pennant. Once all pennants are in place, ensure even spacing by adjusting individually along banding.
