Flag Day  

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Ok, so I made some navy and white bunting flags for some pretty awesome folks I know. Here is the process. It was lengthy, but we got there in the end.

First step was making the patterns.

In different sizes.

Then the cutting and pinning.

And some more cutting.

Then came the sewing, because of the fraying.

After the sewing, I had to crush the seams, so it would be flat when ironed. Yup, those are pliers. You can by a fancy crusher thingie, but pliers work just fine.

We then moved along to the ironing.

Ohh, flag-a-licious-ness is in sight!

Then more pinning, and some measuring.

More pinning, with the measuring.

Then came the clipping.

Fine flags, no?

These are flags that are fine. I am proud.
