1) Sharpen up a pencil with the Westcott iPoint Evolution Axis Sharpener. Using the guidelines on the Westcott 24” x 36” Self Healing Cutting Mat, create a diamond shaped paper pattern by tracing along the Westcott 18” Stainless Steel Ruler.
2) Trace the paper pattern on the felt to create the pennant pieces for the banner. For this banner we went with a harvest style color scheme. Cut out the diamond pieces with the Westcott 9” ExtremEdge Titanium Bonded Craft Scissors.
3) With your sharpened pencil, trace the Westcott LetterCraft Stencils onto a piece of felt. Cut out the letters with the Westcott 6” Precision Tip Titanium Bonded Craft Snips. These scissors are amazing for cutting accurate detail work and “fussy cuts”.
4) Create another triangular paper pattern for the interior layer of the pennants. Cut triangles for each of the pennants and assemble the pieces onto the yarn, using fabric glue to hold it all in place. To finish the piece off, stitch the pennants with a sewing machine, or you can do the sewing by hand. Then trim the edges of the larger triangular pieces with the Westcott 9.5” Pinking Shears.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
