First Pattern For Sale & Free Tutorial

I'm going to be listing the Patriotic Pennants - paper pieced pattern is for sale . I'm very excited to be starting this new adventure. I have so many ideas and lots of designs to share. If you ever have any questions or design suggestions, please let me know!

Prim Patriotic Banner
You will need
- an odd number of completed paper pieced pennants from the pattern
- a couple yards of 2" wide coordinating ribbon or fabric
- burlap scraps larger than your completed pennants

1.) If you have not already done so, carefully remove the paper
foundation from the back of the pennants.

2.) Trim pennants down to exact size -
you will not need the 1/4" seam allowance for this project.

3.) Pin a pennant on to a piece of scrap burlap -
make sure you have at least 1/2" border of burlap on all sides.

4.) Sew pennant to burlap, stitching with 1/4" seam allowance.

5.) Trim burlap giving the pennant about 1/2" border.

6.) You can either run your ribbon/fabric string
through your ruffler foot at level 12
or run a long basting stitch down the center and hand gather.

7.) Arrange pennants on ruffled ribbon/fabric and pin in place.
Stitch in place.

That's it! Super easy and such a great prim touch for the holidays.
Have questions?
Let me know!
