These pennants will be hanging outside, so I wanted them large enough to be seen from the street. Each pennant is 20" long by 10"wide. ~
Although I wasn't going for accuracy, there was lots of measuring, pinning and fitting to get the look of the the Union Flag. I had all the fabric on hand and used the twine from a bale of straw for the cord so the cost was zero. Effort was another whole story!
I think I'll host a Diamond Jubilee party to get some more use from my banner. The colours are so jaunty and vibrant that I saw them turn more than a few heads in passing cars! ~
Why on earth did I tell my grandson I would paint his dresser as this flag? Geometry was never my thing. I think I'll be asking his math whiz dad to tape the dresser off for me!
