4th of July Garden Flag

In addition to my 4th of July Banner for the I Love The USA Blog Hop using Laura Kelly’s Patriotic Fabric, I made addition projects.   This project was a simple 4th of July Garden Flag!  I love it and it will proudly hang in my front lawn for the 4th!!!

Materials used:

Laura Kelly’s Patriotic Fabric, available at JoAnns Stores

Burlap, also available at JoAnns Stores

Laura Kelly’s Patriotic Mix of Buttons from Buttons Galore & More

Coats & Clark Thread

Apple Barrel Acrylic Paints

Coats and Clark Embroidery Floss

For the sizing of the flag that I wanted, I basically just took the measurement from a garden flag that I have.

Next, I folded over the edges and sewed them just to keep it from fraying.

On the burlap, I used a pen to write out Happy 4th of July.

Then, I painted the letters with Apple Barrel Acrylic Paints.

Next, I used Coats & Clark Embroidery Floss and Laura Kelly’s Patriotic Mix buttons to attach the burlap to the flag.

I made sure to tie them so close to the edge of the burlap so that if the burlap decided to lose a few strands, it wouldn’t fall off.

I hope you like my little 4th of July Garden Flag!
