In this picture you only see 4 things – the printed templates, tesa, ribbon and punch. Why so little and why do we need Tesa and gift ribbon? Just keep reading!
This guide is for those of you who prefer easy crafting without much effort. If you use the pennant chain only once for a party or at short notice as decoration for more mood, then you do not need to make any holes or use the sewing machine. Just glue the pennants together.
The alternative: tinker the pennants with a string. Make two holes in the two corners of the pennant using the punch. Try out, in which the pennants are to hang on the cord and off you go! But expect a supernatant of at least 20 centimeters because you should hang the pennant chain later. This paper guide is perfect for a wedding or kids birthday.

We hope that the instructions in pictures were helpful! And now a few words about it. We recommend that you first iron your collected fabric scraps. The cutting and sewing becomes easier and the result – more beautiful. Press the selected template and make it with a cardboard. Generally there are two forms for pennant chain, which you can find below. Alternatively, you can draw a triangle yourself on a box. When everything is ready, you can start sewing. Lay two triangles one on top of the other (ie, the pattern sides are inside) and sew along the two long sides, one centimeter from the outside edge. Sew on the thread at the beginning and at the end. They are almost done! Iron the finished triangles again and sew in sequence with the Schrag tape. Now you are done! Be inspired by our creative examples!
