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!!!
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!
