Denim Pennant Banner page 2 Return to page 1
Repeat steps 5 and 6 for all twenty-four pairs.
7. Cut the Slick paint applicator end according to the width of the line you want. You may want to experiment on a scrap of fabric before actually beginning. This can be messy, so place the pennant on newspaper before you begin. Paint the long edges of the pennant, making a squiggly line (straight lines are impossible!) or paint your own design. Paint one side of all the pennants and let dry, about four hours.
8. Once the paint on one side has dried, turn the pennants over and paint the squiggly lines on the opposite sides.
9. Sew the pennants onto the seam tape, leaving about a 2 1/2 foot tail on each end for tying onto something. Alternate light and dark blue pennants as you sew. When you reach the end of the first package of bias tape, simply overlap the beginning of the new tape to the end of the old.
10. Hang up and enjoy. Then send me a photo of your new banner that you would like me to post here.
Once my banner was finished, I immediately hung it in our garden, thumbtacking it to two old oars I painted and attached to our garden beds. Makes me smile every time I'm out there, which is almost every day during the summer.
