Last week I made some Easter Pennant Banners to send to Feather Your Nest in Pickerington. And as I was creating them I snapped a few pics of the process so I could share how to make these. I find pennant banners one of the easiest things to sew and making them for Easter is a fun craft project.
I actually made a few last year but didn’t sell them, so I took them to Feather Your Nest, where they sold. So I made some more. I have to say I really liked all of these and if they don’t sell I’ll just use them in my own home
Cut out 2 egg shapes for each pennant in your banner.
Topstitch, wrong sides together (so the right sides are out), two egg-shaped pieces.
Trim around the edges of the eggs with pinking shears.
I have some fun new tools in my sewing room – scallop-edged pinking shears! I bought them from this etsy shop. They carry 3 different sizes and I bought all three sizes. I am so happy with all of them. The medium and small are my favorite.
For the smallest sized Easter eggs I added a bit of lace as a connector between the egg and the binding.
Then I connected the lace pieces to the top binding. The spacing between the eggs is personal preference – there is no right or wrong here!
Here’s a look at the back side of the Egg Banner.
Wasn’t that simple?! I know you could make your own I used fabric, bits of lace, and ribbon I had on hand. Just dig through your stash and use whatever makes you happy!
The larger sized egg shapes I connected directly to the binding by tucking the top of the egg into the binding. You can create any size eggs and connect them to the binding either way.
So what do you think? Will you make some Easter Pennant Banners?
If you want one (or two or three) but you would prefer to purchase them, I’d be delighted to make you some! Just shoot me and email, comment here, or through any of my social media buttons at the top of the page.
