Basic Sewing Supplies Needed

DIY fabric pennant banner tutorial

Iron your fabrics nice and flat.  Print out your Pennant Template and lay this over a few pieces of fabric and cut these out.  Cut out as many pennants as you will need.  I love using Fabric Bundles for this project because the colors and prints are already coordinated!

Cut the fabric

Because these pennants are double-sided, you will decide which fabric will be on the front and on the back.  Place your cut fabric RST (right sides together) and sew along the 2 long sides of the triangle (leaving the short side open for turning).  Repeat this step for each pennant in your banner.

Next, you will turn each pennant right side out and get the tip of your pennant to a point.  I have found using a Purple Thang is the perfect tool to get these pesky points out!  Do this for each pennant and then press any wrinkles out.

Once you have your pennants pressed out, you will take your Double Sided Bias Tape and situate this along the open raw edge of each pennant.  Enclose the raw edges with the bias tape.  Use pins or Wonder Clips to situate each pennant placement before you sew these in place.

That’s it!  Easy Peasy!

  5. This looks like a quick sew and so customizable! I can think of several occasions coming up where these would be such a nice decoration. Thanks for offering the free pattern and instructions!

  6. I printed the pattern “full size” on 8.5×11 inch paper and have a template that is 8.5″ long from top to tip. Is that the correct size? Thanks for your help!

      When I print it, it measures at 8″ from the middle of the top line to the center of the tip. If yours prints bigger, you will get a slightly bigger pennant. Like a bonus! yay!
