(This is one of a few more detailed posts to come about projects I completed in Henry’s nursery. I know. It never ENDS.)
I had tons of fabric collected for Henry’s nursery. I just kept buying fabric I liked, as I mentioned in the pillow post. Since I ended up not needing oodles of pillows, I tried something else with the excess of fabric.
I see pennants used for decor, parties and sewing, and I was jonesing for some in Henry’s room. They are fun and playful, while also being super simple. I was able to make all these in an hour or so.
I started with the tutorial by A home-based mom. However, I made a few changes for my use. I made them smaller – about 6 inches wide and long. I also chose not to make the pennants two-sided (in the tutorial, she sews two pennants back-to-back to allow it to be reversible. Since they were going on the wall, I deemed this unnecessary.
To put them together, I used navy blue pre-made binding from Hancock. I draped them at the top of the wall with a staplegun. The holes are so small they aren’t even noticeable if I do take them down.
I ended up making WAY too many of the pennants, so I’m thinking I may be making more strands to hang on my fence next summer for the patriotic holidays. Or maybe I need a big pennant quilt with all the extras?
So many pennant options, so little time. For now, I’m just enjoying the burst of pattern they add to Henry’s nursery.
