Back Issue__ Everybody Wins: Flag Garland
Summer was nice while it lasted but with all of the new fashion fall wears (and being able to sleep under the covers) we decided to make a flag garland as a surrender to fall. So, whether you’re heading back to a dorm room, just changed addresses or are “decorating challenged” this easy craft will add something to any room.
What you’ll need:
1. fabric (old clothes work well)
2. rope, string or cord
4. an iron
5. sewing thread and needle or sewing machine
Cut out your flag shape, you can use the first one as a guide for the rest of them. Experiment with triangles or squares for a more nautical look.
Fold over approximately one inch at the top of the flags and press with the iron. Pressing is the motion of lifting and pressing the iron down in a vertical motion. This sets the fabric. Always make sure the iron is at the right temperature for the fabric you’re using.
Place your cord in the crease of the fold and sew shut.
Now, raise your white (or whatever color or pattern you chose) flag in truce too!
