Polka Dot Banner
In case you didn't know....I like Polka dots, and I like pink....so here is a perfect combination. I have been checking banners out for a while now and decided to try my hand. Most of the ones I have seen, you sew them to ribbon or bias binding. I saw a business site recently that used the pennants on a ribbon with button holes. This seemed like a good idea, that way, you could seperate the pennants if your space you were putting your banner was wider. So I looked at several tutorials on Pinterest and even found a free download (which I can't find again to share the link) for the pennant.
I sewed around 3 sides and left an opening at the top, just big enough I could turn it. It took awhile to turn them all and then press them. Longer than I thought it would. I then marked two buttonholes, using 5/8" ribbon as my size guide. I choose to use black thread on both colors of pennants, because I planned to use black ribbon. The whole process was a little more lengthy than I orginally thought it would and I am not happy with the pennants being able to move on the ribbon. Each time I hang them up, I have to arrange them. I may or may not put the letters on this one: Party Time. Putting nothing on them gives me options. Next up: Christmas Fabric Banner (rectangles) on quilt binding.
