.:Tutorial Tuesday (a couple days late!) - Easter Pennant Banner:.


Wow!

I meant to have this tutorial up on Tuesday, of course, and our internet has been giving me fits!

I'm going to try and hurry and type it out before our internet decides to quit on me again!

To make this pennant banner, you will need:

- fabric
- freezer paper
- cutting machine (I used Lucy of course!)
- paint (I used velveteen fabric paint, but any type of fabric paint would work)
- pinking shears
- sewing machine/accessories
- bias tape
- iron
- paint brush


I started off by using Lucy and freezer paper to make my Chevron egg shape. Of course, you could do this without a cutting machine too! If you're using a Silhouette, you'll want to put the freezer paper on the cutting mat with the shiny side down.


Cut out your design and iron it down on your fabric where you'd like it to be.


Paint in your design.


Let it dry, and then cut out your shapes. I used my pinking shears. In hindsight, I should have cut them out before I did the stenciling and painting. Oopsie.

With the velveteen paint, once it is dry, you set your iron to a steam setting and hold your iron over the paint. You'll be amazed with the transformation!


Sew your fronts and backs together.


Then sew your pennants together using your bias tape.


Hang it up and admire!


I made mine smaller because we don't have a large area to hang things from in our townhouse.


Sorry for the flashy pictures! It was overcast and stormy and I could not get any natural light in!


I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.


Not bad for a last minute project!
