Show off your July 4th pride with this red, white and blue banner craft.
- Ruler and pencil or printer
- Plain white paper
- Fabric, solids or patterns (patterns should be on both sides)
- Spray starch
- Double-fold wide bias tape
- An iron
- Stitch Witchery or similar fusible bonding tape
- Draw a triangle, 6" wide and 8" long, or download a template and print. Cut out.
- Use pattern to cut triangles out of a variety of fabrics. You’ll need approximately three pennants for every 2' of banner; for a 12' banner, cut 18 triangles.
- Spray triangles with starch to help prevent fraying.
- Cut bias tape to desired length of banner, allowing 1' extra at each end for hanging.
- Fold tape in half and iron to crease. Open flat.
- Cut two 6" lengths of Stitch Witchery for each pennant. Starting 1' from end, lay a length of Stitch Witchery on lower half of bias tape. Lay a pennant over Stitch Witchery and iron according to instructions on package. Lay a length of Stitch Witchery over top of pennant, fold upper half of bias tape down over Stitch Witchery and iron.
- Space pennants about 2" apart, and repeat Step 6 for each pennant.
