Let It Wave: Craft a Garden-Inspired Flag
I decided to make a garden flag to hang on the side garden gate. Garden flags are a wonderful way to accent your garden. They add movement, a sense of whimsy, and are a fabulous way to decorate outdoors.
I could not decide on the final design, so I made two styles that I can alternate as I please.
The design for both flag begins with the center circle pieces. The circles are actually a play on reverse silhouettes that feature a garden trowel or a succulent. The center circles required no sewing at all. In fact, if you chose to make the cheerful flag, sewing is completely optional. I'll show you how.
- Pinking shears
- Sewing scissors
- Fabric glue—washable/waterproof variety
- Measuring tape
- Sewing machine/thread
