a little *how to*

I have been busy making pennants for store displays this summer and shared a quick * how to* with an email group earlier this year. Finally I am getting around to sharing it with you!  

Red Tree Summer Window

You will need the following...
      * card-stock (or cardboard)
      * 8 feet of twine or cotton rope
      * 3 to 4 different fabrics, 1/2 yard of each
      * thread, or iron on fusing tape
      * a pair of really sharp scissors

On card-stock, draw a triangle of whatever size you want your pennants to be, and cut it out. Trace your template onto the back of your fabrics.  How many pennants you need is determined by the size of your triangles, and how long you would like the finished piece to be.  

Fold the top of the pennants over the twine, or rope.   

You can hand sew the pennants together, run them through a sewing machine, or follow the instructions on a package of iron-on fusing tape. 

Ta-Da! Hang and enjoy!

Here is anther smaller version...
