Patriotic Lace Flag
Show your support by displaying this Patriotic Lace Flag on Armed Forces Day. It also make a great beginning sewing project for kids.
1.For the top strip of the banner, cut a 30″ piece of lace. You want this piece to be a fairly wide piece, mine is 2.5″ wide. Pin off a 15″ section in the center of the strip.
2. Cut out white/cream lace patterns that are approximately 25″ long. I have about 14 strips of varying widths. Place the top edge of the strips about 1/2″ over your top strip.
3. Cut 7 pieces of red ribbons or red fabric strips 25″ long. Place the top edge of the red ribbons/strips about 1/2″ over your top strip.
4. Cut a 7″x10″ rectangle from a piece of blue fabric, place it over the top of your strips.
5.Fold the top strip down over the lace strips/ribbons/fabric and pin them all together.
6. Sew along the top strip, stitching through all of the layers of lace and ribbons.
