We’re having so much fun playing with EZ-Steam™. The possibilities are really endless!! Today, we’re sharing a Mini Fabric Pennant Banner. It’s a quick, no-sew project that can be done in about a 1/2 hour. It’s perfect for parties, holidays, and a little home décor flair;). Our sample uses Floresta in Cashmere from Floressence by Art Gallery Fabrics. If you’re looking to track down some EZ-Steam™ of your own, head to your local Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Store.
Mini Fabric Pennant Banner
Materials & Tools List
1 Fat Quarter of fabric (or scraps of various fabrics)
EZ-Steam™ II Sheets
Rotary Cutter & Related Supplies
Iron & Ironing Mat
Step 1 – Cut Fat Quarter in half to create two 9″ x 21″ rectangles. Fold in half lengthwise and press.
Step 2 – Print out pennant template and carefully cut out.
Step 3 – Place top of template against the fold in the fabric and trace around the edges with a disappearing marker. Trace 6 pennants per folded piece of fabric. Carefully cut all 12 pennants out.
Step 4 – Check to see which side of the EZ-Steam™ II paper removes most easily. Trace 12 pennants onto that side of the product with a pencil. Carefully cut out. (note: You should be able to fit 12 pennants onto one sheet of the EZ-Steam™ II.)
Step 5 – One by one, remove paper-backing and finger press sticky side onto the wrong side of the fabric, matching edges as shown.
Step 6 – Line up all open triangles & remove second paper-backing.
Step 7 – Align twine along the center folds as shown.
Step 8 – Fold top half of triangle down, so that twine is enclosed and finger press in place.
Step 9 – To create permanent bond, fuse all pennants following manufacturer’s instructions.
And you’re done!! Hang wherever your heart desires;).
Looking for something a little different? Try using pre-made or handmade binding tape in place of the twine! EZ-Steam™ II is completely sewing machine safe, so finishing the edges with a straight or zip-zag stitch is also an option.
We’d love to see what you make, so be sure to post a photo on our Facebook page OR share with our ‘Made with Pellon®‘ flickr group! Happy Crafting!
