I have fond memories of the felt board and felt pieces that I grew up with and was wanting to buy some flannel board stories recently. I never knew how expensive felt pieces are! Even the set I found on Craigslist was over $100! After doing the iron-on onesie designs, I decided to use the same T-shirt iron-on transfers to make my own felt pieces!
Make Your Own Flannel Board Felt Pieces
I’m super giddy and thrilled at how perfectly they turned out, because this opens a whole new world of possibilities for the different felt characters and images I can make. I made these cute farm felt pieces using my printable quiet book pdf, and then just ironed them onto felt. It took probably five minutes! Now I have cute felt pieces to go in my portable felt book!
You can also make felt scripture story characters! I have a plan to do one new story each week so that eventually I have a filing cabinet full of each of the stories. You can get all of the scripture stories here:
Tips For Making Your Own Felt Pieces:
- Just make sure that if you are ironing on an image with letters or numbers that you remember to reverse the image! I forgot that the pigs had numbers on their shirts so I skipped this step (the numbers are backwards).
- Use the snipping tool to copy and paste as many images to one page as possible so that you don’t have to use as many transfer papers. I try to leave as little white space as possible, giving me more felt pieces per page.
