diy: fabric pennant flag banners



supplies needed:
cotton fabric: i used 1 yard of each color
extra wide double fold bias tape (each is 3 yards long)
thread
sewing machine
sissors or pinking sheers



directions:
i made a quick pattern by folding an 8.5 x 11 paper. making the pennant pattern 8.5" x 9.5"



use the pattern to cut as many triangles that you need. you can use regular sissors or pinking sheers if you want to add a more decorative effect. 8 triangle pennants fit comfortably onto each 3 ft. piece of bias tape.


simply slip each triangle into the fold in the bias tape and sew (one at a time) being sure to secure the triangle securely into the tape. be sure to leave enough bias at each end to use to hang.


ta-da!! the finished product. super cute and machine washable so you can have for many celebrations to come.
