From the main fabric cut:
First of all, print the FPP templates at home or take them to a copy shop to have them printed. Make sure that when printing them the option to print at real size or 100% scale is activated. Do not activate “fit to page”.
Print the desired templates. Tree and Present pennants are easier to make than Santa or Deer. I have made three OH!s and one design of each, for a total of seven pennants.
Do the FPP blocks as usual. Sew the sections / pieces of each pennant right sides together as shown in the layout diagrams included in the templates sheets.
Cut the backs of the pennants using the tree template as a model.
Place the backing and pennant top right sides together and sew along the whole perimetre, leaving the top side open. Carefully clip the three corners at the bottom part of the pennant close to the thread. Do not clip the thread!
Turn inside out the pennant and press to achieve crisp edges.
Place the string within the seam allowance of the pennant and fold back the strip, leaving the string inside. Press.
Secure the strip and the string with wonder clips or pins. Repeat the process with the remaining pennants, measuring the distance between them. I’ve set a 4″ distance between them to decorate a fireplace.
Topstitch at either open side of the strip and along the top of the pennant, close to the folded edge of the strip. Repeat the process with the remaining pennants.
