If a child's birthday party is just around the corner or you simply want to redesign your child's room, these sewing instructions are just the thing for you.

What you need:

  • Fabric (e.g. from our organic muslin fabric box)
  • fabric scissors
  • a sewing machine
  • yarn
  • a bias tape in the desired length of the garland
  • a template for the pennants
  • tailor's chalk
  • pins
  • Ruler or hand measure

Sewing instructions:

Step one is to cut your pennants to size. When you make your template for the pennants, remember to mark approx. 1 cm seam allowance on all edges. You have various options in terms of size and, of course, color. You need two cut triangles of the same size for each pennant.

Now mark the point in the middle of the tip where you will later sew the corner. The point should be about 1.5 - 2 cm away from the cut corner.

Then it's time to sew.

After you have sewn the pennant, trim the corner as shown in the picture below. This makes turning much easier. When trimming, it is important not to cut too close to the seam!

Next, press the seam flat apart and over to both sides so that the pennant can be turned properly later and lies flat.

To turn the tip really nicely, it helps to shape the corner from the inside with a pen.

And the pennant is finished! Repeat this process in different colors until you have all the pennants you want for your necklace.

Now cut the desired length of bias tape and position the pennants on it using pins. Remember that you need space at both ends of the garland without pennants to hang them up later.

The end of the pennant chain will look best if you fold it in once before sewing the chain lengthwise. This is clearly visible in the following three pictures:

Then sew the bias tape lengthwise to the open side (close to the edge) and include the pennants.

Your own pennant chain is finished and the party can begin!
