Make a fold the width you would like your pennant to be.
Fold your first fold in half lengthwise. This way you will be able to make two equal triangles. Mark the length of your pennant with a pin, and cut freehand as shown below. I made three different sized pennants. Don't make the pennants too long, or the children will trip on them when they play.
Unfold your triangles, place the right sides of the fabric together, and seam the two long sides.
Trim the extra fabric on the point, turn the pennant right side out, tuck the raw edges on the short side in, and staple to your dowel.
The first time I made pennants, I used scrap lumber and crepe streamers, we stuck them in the ground, and they were a wonderful birthday decoration which flowed in the wind. You can also use flag fabric, or recycle umbrella fabric. If you can't sew, just make a one-sided pennant.
Time to play! Time to try to touch the leaves in the trees,
