Kite Wall Hanging

Sue Eldred
March 14, 2019

Are you ready for Spring?  Then let's go fly a kite! 

It's time to put away the winter décor and celebrate the beautiful sunny skies of Spring with with just enough breeze to fly a kite, or at least make a fabric one to decorate the wall! You will need:

  • Joy® iron-on embroidered letter sheet
  • Joy® iron-on embroidered floral appliqué
  • 9" x 12" white felt
  • 9" x 12" cotton fabric - 2 pieces

  • 12" x 12" White Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Ric Rac trim
  • Twine
  • Fabri Tac Glue
  • Sewing Machine
  • Iron


1. Create a kite pattern:  

Cut the white cardstock to 9" x 12" then fold in half lengthways.  On the two long sides make a mark at 4".  For the top of the kite, draw a line from the top middle fold to the 4" mark on each side.  For the bottom of the kite, draw a line from the 4" mark to the bottom middle folds.

2. Trace then cut out the kite pattern on the back of both of the printed fabrics and the white felt.

3. Sandwich the white felt between the two patterned pieces.  Pin in place then top stitch around the kite. 4. Remove the letters from the letter sheet and arrange the words "LETS GO FLY A KITE" onto the front of the kite with the shiny side down. 5. Following directions on the packaging,  cover with a soft clean cloth and iron on cotton setting for 30 seconds.  Turn kite over and repeat for an additional 30 seconds.

6. Cut the top flower and leaves off the floral appliqué. Arrange the flowers on the kite then iron in place. 7. Glue ric rac trim around the edge of the kite to finish.

8. To make the tail, cut strips of fabric and tie onto a 14" piece of twine.  Glue one end of the twine to the back of the kite.  Make a small loop with a second piece of twine and glue to the top of the kite.
