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.
