first year pennants.

Getting ready for Baby’s First Year! Over the years I’ve created baby pennants for friends. And once we found out a little of our own was on the way, I knew I wanted to make a set for myself! I usually make the pennants smaller (like this or this) and place them on dowels. This time I went a little bit bigger. I used thick felt in size 12″ x 18″ and cut out 6″ x 18″ pennants. I cut strips of white felt 1″ wide to create the side ribbons and the strip on the left side. I used Eastwood font from Da Font as inspiration.

Excited to use these each month, and, while not in use, they should make cute bebe nook decor. Do you have littles? How did you commemorate their monthly milestones? Share below!

Align cords and fold in half. String on wooden ring and place at the cord midpoint. Tie an overhand knot with all three cords. Pull each cord end separately to tighten the knot. Sew two pom poms on each cord. The pom poms should stay in place, but …
