EASY PENNANT BANNER TEMPLATE TUTORIAL
SUPPLIESFirst, you will need to gather your supplies! Here is what you will need:
- Blue bias tape (extra wide, double fold)
- Scissors or paper cutter (I prefer a paper cutter because it cuts more precise lines)
- The pennant free printable design that you can find from our free printable library (sign up for emails to receive passcode)
- Paper; we suggest using linen paper

MEASUREFirst, you are going to want to measure the desired length of your bias tape based on where you will be hanging it. Some people like to hang their pennant banners on their mantle. In that case, you will want to measure your mantle and add about 10 to 12 inches to the tape you cut.
PRINT BANNER PIECESNext, print out those adorable, patriotic pennant designs! Go to our free printable library to find them! You can find our library by going to Life on Summerhill's menu and selecting the Free Printable Library. To gain access, simply sign up and join the family! We'll send you an access code so that you can get started on your pennant banner. After you have printed out the designs, carefully cut out the pennants so that each one is the same size.
CREATE PATTERNMake sure to lay out your pennants in the desired pattern. Hold them up to the bias tape side by side to make sure that you have enough of the pennants printed out. Carefully place the pennants one at a time inside the fold of your cut bias tape. Place them right next to each other, but leave a little room on the ends (about an inch) to fold over and stitch later. This video will show you how to do this and every step of the pennant banner.
SEWINGNow it's time to do some sewing! I raised the stitch to about 5.0 because I wanted a nice big, fat stitch on the bias tape. And finally, stitch along the edge of the bias, setting the pennants in place in the tape. When you finish fold in the ends and stitch them in place.
FINISHED PRODUCTNow you have a finished pennant banner! It's an adorable way to add character to any room, party or in my case porch for the 4th of July.
