Sweet Pennant Flags & DYI

A friend asked me to make a pennant to hang in her daughter's room.  So I thought I'd document the project and process.  It does require using a sewing machine but all straight stitches!

Each pennant flag is approximately 5.5" wide and and 7" long and double sided (two different fabrics).  Make your own template to cut out the triangles. I used 8 different fabrics to make a 175" pennant string. Pick two different flags and pin them together (back of fabric together).  Run a straight stitch about 1/2" from the edge of the two long sides.

Using your pinking sheers trim a bit off each side to give some texture. To assemble the pennant string, I used .75" twill tape folded over the open/top edge of each flag, stitched down, to string them together.  Just line up each flag side by side on the twill tape as you sew.

Now hang it up!  Isn't it adorable?  Wouldn't this look great in any little girl's room?  But wait, what if you make other fabrics that reflect your little boy's favorite things?  So cute!

Remember to hang it high enough out of reach of little hands.

Voilá!  The finished and hanging pennant.  Isn't it adorable?  According to her mom, the little girl who sleeps under it, points to it when people come into her room. I think she likes it too.
