Make your own fabric banners

I love fabric pennant banners.
They’re a great photo prop, can be made any size, and you just need a few scraps of fabric to piece one together.
I love how versatile they can be, depending on the fabric used.

Here’s how easy they are to make:

Make a template out of paper or cardboard first. Your measurements can be whatever you choose, but the height should be 1″ taller than the width.
I made mine 4″ x 5″.
Figure out how long your want your banner and cut out twice as many triangles as you need.

With right sides together sew each triangle on the long sides, leaving the top open to turn. Turn each right side out and iron flat.

Using ribbon, twine, bias tape, or lace, pin each flag into place, making sure they are evenly spaced.
Sew together, which both holds them in place, and covers the unfinished edge, leaving a length of ribbon on each end.

I love these.
I want one in every color, size, and pattern.
