I know I’ve been super behind with my posts lately but I’m trying to catch up. Back in December, I made this cute fabric pennant banner for my little niece’s nursery. At the time, she wasn’t even born yet. Now she’s almost 3 months old! Where has the time gone? And why didn’t I share this project earlier? Two words: Grad School. Enough said about that. Here’s how the pennant turned out! And a cute photo from when Emma was still an “inside baby”.
I won’t include a full description of how I made this since it’s pretty self explanatory. So here’s a quick photo rundown of how this project came together…
- Everything was sewn with my Brother sewing machine. The ribbon connecting all the letters is sewn as well. I did not use any fabric glue.
- The letters were sewn on when the triangles were unfolded and actually diamonds. That way I could fold them into triangles, sew around the edges (leaving a gap for flipping), and flip them right side out again, without seeing any backside stitches from the letters.
- I chose not to fold the letter edges under, so they are a bit ragged. Since I don’t expect this thing to need laundering, fraying should never be an issue.
- Ironing is key with this project when it comes time to flip each triangle right side out and sew a seam for structure around the edges.
- The pennant is made from the same fabric used in Emma’s crib bedding, so it matches the room perfectly!
This was a simple one, but ask away if I was too brief. Thanks for reading!
