Watermelon Pennant Banner

I was getting tired of my stars and stripes/firecracker/patriotic decor.  I usually don't bust out my watermelon stuff until August but I was ready for it now so today I made the change.  I just recently sewed a new pennant banner with watermelon inspiration.  I cut my triangle pieces out of different patterns of red.  I cut a 1 1/2" strip of green fabric to sew on the tops as the rind part of the melon.  I just sewed it over the top edge of each triangle with a wide zig zag stitch.  Then after I had a bunch of those sewn I cut them into sections of 3's and 4's and pinned them onto what I would use as my backing fabric (which in this case was green canvas).  I then sewed around the outside edge of each piece (sewing it directly onto the canvas).  I cut around each triangle with my pinking shears (well not around each one exactly but around the entire row). 
 Finally I sewed a piece of green ribbon all along the top edge of the pieces (connecting them all together) to form one long banner. 
 I love how it turned out.  So bright and fresh for summer.  Perfect for out watermelon season which is just barely starting.
