It's football season! These hand embroidery patterns featuring an American football player, a banner, and football border can be used to embroider items for football season. The circular medallion can be used as the center of a pillow cover or quilt, or embroider the design on a fleece stadium blanket to take to the next football game.
You can embroider the designs on ready-made items using your favorite surface embroidery stitches, or customize a table runner, napkins, gear bag or pillow made from your favorite embroidery fabric and pattern to coordinate with your favorite team. Use the varsity alphabet in step 3 to customize your player's number or the words on the banner.
The image above shows the medallion, while the pages that follow feature the other motifs in this set in a printable format. Be sure to click on the image to bring it up to its full size before printing, for best results. Don't print the page as-is without clicking the image, as it will be much too small to trace or use.
General directions for marking the fabric and working the design can be found in the following steps.
