So, I started making pennants…
Each is the same size and shape, and hand-sewn using different stitches. Theoretically, this will remind me how to sew, and be a good use of random small scraps of fabric.
After the first couple, chopsticks weren’t doing it for me. Initially, I thought I could press the ends of a metal tubes together, punch a hole through the flat area (as is sometimes done in jewelry making) and string the tubes together with s-hooks.
However, the tubing I bought was a little too thick for that plan. No matter—some left over wire, threaded through the cut tubes and folded over, did the trick!
Additionally, hanging them on a chain, rather than just stringing them together with the hooks, lets me replace or move them as I add, or—procrastinate, as you can see from the three that are still in pins awaiting stitches.
More to come!
