Pennant flag banner. I'm sure you've seen these whimsical flags gracing the front page of all your favorite blogs lately. A garland of flags is a quick and easy way to decorate for your upcoming parties and can be used over and over again. The best part is that you don't even have to sew anything: Just cut triangles out of fabric remnants, slit a couple holes to thread a long string or ribbon and hang. Fun.
Tip: Start with a long narrow piece of fabric and cut triangles with a rotary cutter. You will find that there is hardly any waste with this project because you can alternate the direction of the the triangles on your strip of fabric.
