Finished: Pennant Decoration for Birthday Party!

Just wanted to follow up on a previous post about the pennant I made following this tutorial from Diary of a Quilter. The tutorial really is excellent, check it out.  Like Amy recommends, I wouldn’t bother with pins when you are sewing the triangles to the bias tape. Also, I cut out a triangle from a piece of cardboard and used that to make sure the triangles were all about the same size.

I made two of these pennants one for our fireplace and the other will hang in our dining room window. I’m excited to put them both up for Sunday’s birthday party!

I think this would be a great project for using up bed sheets and any extra fabric. I’m half tempted to make these for every season — seriously they are that easy and they really do make a room seem festive.

Big thanks to Diary of Quilter for this fun (and quick) project!

    The pennant looks great, Kelly! I’ve also thought about making something like that to hang around the house…it really does add some fun color to a room! Hope the party went well and Happy Birthday to Miss Lucy!

      Thanks, Chrissy! The party was such fun — filled with pink and purple!! Did your girls go through such a phase? If you make any pennants, let me know. They are super fast and I think they would be a great addition to any holiday gathering! Hope you are doing well. Thanks so much for reading/commenting!
