10cm (4") embroidery hoop (optional) If you’re not familar with the embroidery techniques used in this project, turn to page 100 before beginning for a handy step-by-step guide. Place the front pennant fabric piece in an embroidery hoop, if you’re using one. Using three strands of yellow thread and whipped backstitch, stitch the words ‘crafting’ and ‘soul’.
Embroider the rest of the text with backstitch and three strands of green thread. Use backstitch and six strands of coral thread for the stars. Use backstitch and three strands of coral thread to stitch the dots.
Remove the embroidered piece from the hoop. Cut out the front and back fabric pieces for the pennant following the outer dotted lines. Place the front and back pieces with right sides (RS) together, making sure the solid grey lines are matching. Sew using the white sewing thread and a 0.5cm (¼") seam allowance (along the grey line), leaving the top open. Turn RS out.
Fold the top raw edges to the wrong side by 0.5cm (¼"), then fold the top of the pennant over the wooden dowel. Sew along the top edge, just underneath the wooden dowel, using the white sewing thread.
Make a mini pom pom using the teal yarn and either a fork or a small pom pom maker.
To finish off the pennant, tie the pom pom to one end of the dowel, using the image as a guide. Finally, cut a 22cm (8¾") length of yarn and tie onto both ends of the dowel for hanging.
