To make some of your own celebration flags, you'll need to gather the following supplies:
Begin by folding your fabric in half. The fold will act as the back of your pennant.
Using your pinking shears or cutter, cut out a pennant (or a skinny triangle) shape. The point of your triangle should be on the opposite side of the fold.
Open up the doubled over pennant shape you cut. Center the dowel rod in the middle of the pennant. Fold the pennant over, lining it back up. With your nail, press down on the inside edge of the dowel rod to create a crease. This will help guide you when sewing the pennant.
Head to your sewing machine.
Sew starting from the folded over edge at the top of the pennant, down to the tip. Turn your pennant, at the tip, and continue sewing the bottom of the pennant stopping at the crease mark you made. Turn and continue sewing following the line of the crease mark back up to the top of the pennant, creating a pocket for the dowel rod.
Insert dowel rod into the pocket you created.
Optional: add a ribbon bow.
What is not optional, waving.
These festive flags can be used instead of rice or bubbles for a wedding procession.
Or simply as fun party props.
These make me feel like celebrating. I just folded laundry...seems like a good enough reason for me to celebrate!
