SUBJECT: Flag banner
I’ve had this idea in my head for some time to sew a cloth flag banner to decorate for the 4th of July and finally decided that tonight, I was going to ignore all of my chores and just go ahead and make it. I used some denim, muslin and a red striped fabric for the flags and red double fold bias tape to hold it all together. By the time I finished putting it together and then messed around for about an hour deciding how to best to photograph it, (and I’m not at all happy with the outcome – there isn’t a whole lot of natural light available at night; I hate using the flash) it became quite late. I am pleased with how the project itself turned out…in fact, I like it so much, I think I am going to make another one tomorrow.
