- Fabric. I used 1/4 yard cuts of 5-6 different patterns.
- Extra wide double fold bias tape. 2-3 packs.
- If you don't have a way to hang your banner, 2 wooden dowels, spray paint, and vases/pots filled with pea gravel or something else heavy.
- Standard sewing supplies: thread, rotary cutter, straight edge, sewing machine.
1. Cut your fabric.
The striped fabric on the left is a dishcloth I found at Target. Since it's a big rectangle, I cut it the same way as the other quilting fabric. (I bought additional dishclothes and used them as a table runner.)
Remember, you should be cutting through two layers of fabric. As you cut your pennants, keep each pair of pennants stacked neatly on top of one another other so they're ready to be sewn together.
2. Sew each pennant.
TIP: Start at the top (where a long edge meets the short edge) and sew down to the bottom point. When you get to the point, leave the needle in your fabric, then turn your fabric to sew along the other long edge. This will give a nice, sharp point to your pennant.
3. Sew the pennants together with bias tape.
Your banner is done. Admire it and smile! If you need a way to hang your banner on a table, like I did, keep reading.
4. Prep dowels for hanging your pennant banner.
Fill flower pots (or the container of your choice) with pea gravel. Insert the dowels and hang your banner.
