Cheat's fabric pennants

It's always good to be versatile, and I realise that not everyone can/wants to sew. Here is an easy way to make fabric pennants!
This pennant pack is just £1 at the Range. A bargain and a really great starting point.
The next cheat is this pack of self-adhesive 12x12" sticky sheets. Imagine a full sheet of Snail glue and you're quite close to imaging what these are like. Plus they stick permanently so can be used for all sorts of craft projects.

 So firstly, stick the pennants to the sticky sheets. Then peel off and stick to the fabric. For this project I chose the Orchard Harvest fabrics in the Autumn/Winter 2012 catalogue.

 The brilliant thing is that the fabric can be smoothed out with your hands or a bone folder so it doesn't matter how creased it is!

Next, the scraps of leftover fabric were stick directly to the self adhesive sheets. This made a sticker type of thing which was fed through the Big Shot with the Pennant die. This made the perfect sized triangle to decorate the centres.
To finish, the triangles were fed onto a narrow (retired) ribbon in Early Espresso. In between each piece of the bunting a small piece of Cherry Cobbler wavy tuile was tied to add further texture.

I hope this gives you some inspiration if you like bunting/pennants but are scared of fabric/sewing.
