  • Get a giant sheet, some paint, and some stencils and do it that way!

  • Felt works well. I've seen white flet baseballs with red stitiching drawn on in marker and each boy's name in black marker surronding two crossed baseball bat and the name on top. Don't make it too long or it will drag at the parade.

  • Instead of a sheet, which will be very tall, you could buy a few yards of bleached muslin from Walmart. It is about $1 per yard I think. So three yards which will be about 9 feet, would be around $3-4. Then like another mom pointed out you could use large stencils and spray paint which would be less messy and dry pretty quick. Or you could get felt in the team colors and do like the second mom said and apply cutouts to the muslin.
