How to Sew a String of Fabric Pennant Flags...an easy sewing craft project

How to sew a string of pennant flags.

This awesome easy sewing craft project can be made in colors to match your bed room and then can be hung across your ceiling!  Or show your patriotism and make it in Red, White, and Blue.  How about orange and black for Halloween? Or your school colors!!! The ideas are endless!!!

 

This quick and easy project is a lot of fun to make.  I made mine in purples and blues to go into one of my sewing rooms which is decorated all in lilac. 

First make yourself a pattern.  I just used a piece of computer paper and with a ruler made my self a flag pennant pattern which is about  12 inches.

Once you have your pattern, pin and cut out as many flags as you would like for your string of flags.  I used 10 so that it would go across my one wall.  You will need to pin and cut TWO of each print of fabric.

With each of your flags pin them PRETTY SIDES together.  You will want to pin the two long sides leaving the top open for turning.  If you look at the photo, where the pins are is the top,  I did not pin or sew there.

Using the pressure foot as your guide straight stitch down to the bottom point of your pennant, pivot, and stitch back up to the other side.  Don't forget to leave the top open.

Once all of your flags are sewn, trim the seams, especially, the bottom point as shown in the photo.  Be careful not to cut into your stitching.

Turn each flag to pretty side out.  With a pencil or chopstick gently poke out the point of each of your flags. 

Once all the corners are poked out and look nice and pointy and professional, press your flags so they look nice and flat like as shown in the photo.

Using the pressure foot as your guide stitch the top opening closed of each flag as shown in the photo.

Cut off any excess fabric from the top, so that the top of each of your flags are even.  (There might be some in the corners as shown in this photo, top left of the flag.)

You will need wide bias tape for this which can be found at any fabric store or places like Wal-Mart in the fabric department. 

Open the wide bias tape and pin each top of the flag in it as shown in the photo.  I put all of my flags 3" apart as you can see in the photo. 

Stitch across the length of the bias tape making sure that you catch all of the flag.

Your awesome flag pennant is done and you can hang it up!!!
