Pennants are a super cute way to inspire your home team, and they are so easy to make. You will want one for every season, special occasion, and party you throw!
This is all you need:
- Fusible interfacing (Fusible fleece interfacing also works really well.)
- Cute ribbon to match, about 3/4″-1″ wide
1. Decide on the size of isosceles triangle you want and make a paper pattern. Graph paper is a good tool for making patterns accurate and square. Our triangles are about 6.5″ across the top, and 8″ down each side. Using the pattern you made, cut a piece of fusible interfacing and a piece of fabric. Make sure to cut the fabric a little larger than the interfacing so it doesn’t stick to your ironing board.2. Press the interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric, according to interfacing manufacturer’s instructions. Using a ruler and a rotary cutter, trim your triangle sides. We used a wavy blade for extra pizzazz.3. Make as many pennant flags as you want to get the length you want. Lay them out in a pleasing arrangement. Cut a piece of ribbon longer than your banner and pin the flags to the wrong side of the ribbon about halfway down (see photo).4. Sew along the fabric edge with a zig zag stitch. Once all the flags are sewn on, fold the ribbon over and straight stitch the ribbon down along the front of the flags. Make sure to cover the zig zag stitching line with the ribbon.Here it is all finished! Make several for room decor, parties, and such. Add a letter to each flag and you’ve got an adorable name banner for a nursery, a happy birthday banner, or whatever else you can imagine. However you decide to personalize this project, it is sure to be a home run!
