Pennant flags are so popular right now and look absolutely adorable in a nursery or kid’s bedroom. And luckily, they’re fairly easy to make as well. Below is a step by step tutorial with pictures, as well as a great shot of the finished product we made for a nursery.
Here are the necessary supplies:
-fabric scraps (any shape or size)
-pinking shears (the scissors with the jagged edges)
-bias tape (any color or width will work)
-sewing machine or needle and thread
1– Using pinking shears, cut out triangles. The triangles don’t need to all be the same shape or size (though they could be if you wanted a more uniform pennant). We cut out 2 of each triangle so the pennant would be double-sided.
2– Sew along the edges of your triangles. We sewed about 1/4″ in from the edge.
3– Pile up all of your cute triangles and admire them. We love the mix of fabrics and patterns.
4– Iron your bias tape
5– Open up your bias tape and nestle each pennant in between the tape. Pin your triangles inside the bias tape.
6– Sew along the edge of the bias tape making sure you are catching the edge of your pennants while sewing.
7– Hang up your pennant
How cute does this pennant look draped over the crib, alongside the colorful School Days alphabet poster? A personalized growth chart would also look sweet, like the cheery, multi-colored Balloon Party or Color Me wall growth charts.
