DIY patchwork american flag

Inspired by the art of Sara Rahbar, this romantic patchwork is fun to create and will spice up your traditional 4th of july celebration. At first I wanted to used only recycled fabric but I had lots of trouble finding scrap fabric that would fit together so I had to head over to the fabric store to purchase new one. So if you are ready for this, grab your scissors and let's DIY.

Material:

-5 different mix & matching fabric for the red stripes: total 54 inches of each in 1.5 inches wide strips
-5 different lace trims
-10 x 14″ denim fabric
-Thread, needles, scissors and sewing machine

This should make a 34 x 19 flag

    I love this. I am going to go home tonight and see what scrap fabric I have stashed away. I will also look at old scarves, yarn, whatever I can find. I absolutely love this.

    Thanks for the idea.
