DIY Pennant Banner

Does the internet need another pennant banner tutorial?


Absolutely not.  So I'm just gonna give details on what I used and which tutorial I followed.

I got the printable pattern here (great tutorial) and made the template from a paper bag.  The fabric I used was a curtain panel that I bought and didn't end up using, green striped Ikea fabric and left over navy fabric from my striped curtains.  I used cotton belting to hold the whole thing together.

I chose to make a pennant banner because I needed something cheap and something that would take up a lot of space on a massive wall in my son's nursery.  I only had to spend about $9 on the belting and I had all the other materials.  Cheap: check.  The banner is 15 feet and fills up most of the wall. Space filler: check.


I know, I know, I need to fix my circle, but there you have it...all 15 feet of my banner.

Next up, I need to fill the other massive wall in the nursery.  I feel another gallery wall coming on.

I hope everyone had a wonderful first day of summer yesterday.  It was hot here!

To all my readers that don't have children or babies:  I'm sorry for all the nursery talk!  I'll be done soon, I promise!
