First Year in a Flash: Fabric Pennant Banner
What is the one thing that everyone has at a birthday party? A birthday banner of course! I made this banner with 5 different fabric patterns, ruffle binding, and double sided stiff interfuse. You will have to forgive me as I did not take pictures of each step as I am still getting used to having to take a picture of each step.
½ yard of 5 different patterned fabrics
1 yard of binding (I chose a ruffled binding)
Cardboard to make pennant pattern
– Take the cardboard and cut a triangle out of it that is the size you would like (I was making a 15 foot banner so I did mine 10”x10”)
– Use pattern to cut out the fabric. (cut enough to make a front and back for the pennant)
– Then trim the pattern down by an inch and use it to cut out the interfacing.
– Set your iron to the setting the interfacing suggests (mine was wool setting with no steam), then start ironing your fabric to the interfacing. You will hold the iron on one side for about 6-8 seconds. Make sure you get the interfacing nice and hot so it will stick to the fabric.
– Once the interfacing is heated to both sides and cooled, then sew your binding on with coordinating thread.
– You can be finished with this step or if you would like you can cut out letters and heat bond them to the pennants to make the banner say “Happy Birthday.”
