I made this Pennant Chevron Pennant Banner
for Harper’s Bow Tie & Tutu Birthday Party!
I ran across this Chevron Pennant Banner created by the fabulous Jen over at TT&J and fell in LOVE!
Jen created hers using her Silhouette!
I could have easily made mine with my Silhouette,
but decided to create a tutorial for those of you who do not have a Silhouette…
because I love you THAT much!
here is how you can make you own Chevron Pennant Banner sans a Silhouette!
Gather your fabrics and cut your pennants out.
Mine were about 7 inches long and 5 inches across the top!
Cut a strip of Heat n Bond and apply to the backs of your fabric according to the directions on the package.
(I cut my Heat n Bond about 3.5 inches wide and 8 inches across)
Next find or create a chevron pattern on your computer and print it out.
Then Trace it onto the back of the Heat n Bond.
Trace about 5 pennant chevron lines per pennant.
Tip: You can line the chevron pattern up with the first line and trace the bottom line to save time!
Once you are finished tracing your chevron pattern,
cut them ALL out!
Peel the paper off of the back of the chevron pattern and apply to the front the of the pennants according to the directions on the Heat n Bond package.
Trim the excess pieces of fabric as needed.
Now it is time to assemble the actual banner!
Get your twine, ribbon or whatever you want to use and cut it to be as long or short as you want your banner to be!
Remember to leave room at the ends for hanging the banner up!
Lay your twine out in a straight line and then lay each pennant where you want it to be on the banner.
Turn each pennant over and put a strip of hot glue across the top of the pennant.
Carefully place the twine on top of the glue and press into place!
Repeat this step for all of the pennants!
I wanted to make the banner a little more girly,
I decided to add lace trim to the top of each pennant!
Cut the lace trim into strips.
Add hot glue to the top, front of each pennant…
And carefully place the lace trim on top of the pennant.
If you want to add a little more happiness to your banner,
cut strips of fabric about one inch wide and 19 inches long.
Tie the strips onto the twine between each pennant and…
You have a super cutie Chevron Pennant Banner!
