I am Looking for a plan to make a banner tail for a HQ Flowform 4.0 - 6.75 ft Wide. One that would use the least material, Length of 50 feet long.
I have a idea in my head, just want to make sure before I start cutting material.

Also what type of material works best for this application?

I'd say taffeta would be the best/cheapest.

One of the local fliers sewed 3 taper tails together.
