If you are looking for a DIY method to make a custom soccer pennant, you are on the right page. Ideally, the whole process will be easier if you use a real pennant as a guide. This will make it more convenient for you to obtain the measurements. So, let’s get started and go over the practical side of the project.
As stated above, make sure you get a real product for support. For example, you can also buy a yard of felt. You can then cut the number freehand. Ideally, you can cut a number slightly smaller than the number above for a layered look. The idea is actually to make sure the numbers are the right size for the pennant. If you can get the shape right, you can get the job done in the first stage. Next, the stitching should be done.
Also, be sure to sew the top and sides of a tall rectangle to the left side of the pennant, which will make a pocket for the pole. This rod pocket will be used for the peg.
Dowel rods are inexpensive. You can get each piece for less than a dollar. Therefore, cost will not be an issue if you are budget conscious. Better to get some extra dowel rods in case you make a mistake during the process. You can use the replacement pins in this situation.
You can use a tool like a branch trimmer to cut the branches into two pieces. The one on the far right is for your private use. If you are doing it for your daughter, make sure the length is short. One of the benefits of shorter pegs is that your daughter can control them better.
You need to make sure the peg is secured in your pocket, which is necessary to prevent the peg from flying into the visitor stands the first time it is shaken. Be sure to mark the end points of the rod pocket. You can use a Sharpie marker or a finger.
The next step is to get a piece of masking tape (it should be 6 inches long). Once you have it, you need to cut it in half. This will give you two small pieces. Starting a little above the marked point, you need to wrap the tape. Next, you need to add the other piece on top of it.
Here it is important to note that the outer strips tend to function as a plug. Therefore, the outward facing strip will not slide up or down. On the other hand, the inner strip offers just the right amount of grip to the pole pocket. This way you won’t lose your pennant. Also, the grip should not be so strong that it is impossible to remove the peg at the end of the season. After all, you must also wear the same pennant next year.
So this is the whole DIY procedure for making your own soccer pennant. Crafting will be easier if you follow the guidelines given in this article.
