For our wedding, we made 400ft of pennant flags as part of our
decorations in the backyard we had our wedding in. This is an easy
project to do, even for beginning sewers. The time it takes to make
them all depends on how long you want to make your pennant flag banner.


What You Will Need:
your chosen fabrics
pinking shears
fabric chalk(or soft pencil will do)
sewing machine

I used clothes line string from the hardware store. There were 2 kinds.
The cotton string and sythentic string. I recommend the synthetic
string because it was much lower in price, and it is much easier to sew
the pennant flag onto the string with the sewing machine.


1) Cut your Fabric- These are the dimensions I cut all my flags, but how wide and long your flags are completely up to you. I have seen a lot of very fun flags that were all in different sizes. Experiment and have fun! The extra rectangular piece of fabric above the triangular flagĀ  is the part you will need to sew on the string.


2) Attaching the flag on the string – Place the string over the rectangular portion of the flag, and roll the fabric over the string.

3) Pin the Flag Down



5) Sew the Flag – You may want to test if your sewing machine will sew over the fabric and string you choose.

6) You are done with your first Flag! – I space mine 12′ inches apart and repeat till you have your desired length.
