GETTING CRAFTY FOR THE 4TH OF JULY

When I saw these flags on Jennifer's blog Town & Country Living,
I thought they were just so adorable!


I also thought they looked fairly easy to make and I knew 
I had some fabric scraps and goodness knows we have
plenty of sticks.

So I got busy and this is what I came up with.


It was fun coming up with the combination of fabrics 
 and I even added buttons to one of them.


When my daughter was little she hated to wear anything with buttons on it.
She would throw a little fit and really didn't even like it if I wore clothing with buttons.
I have never really figured that one out.
So when she saw these flags, she said the only one she didn't like
 was of course the one with the buttons!!
She was just kidding . . . I think.



I ended up kind of scattering them around our dining area.







Quick, easy and cute - gotta love it!

I hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!

  3. I just love your soft approach to the red, white and blue color palette! Your fabric choices are perfect and take a theme that could be harsh and make it really beautiful. It fits so well into your surrounding romantic decor. Really really lovely.

  8. Hi JoAnne, The flags are so adorable and I love your light blue wall drawer chest. I plan to paint a cat bed stand in such a shade of blue. Your furry boss is such a cutie!!!
    Have a sunny weekend!

  9. Oh if I had seen this post earlier, I would have made a few of these darling flags. I guess I should actually make some today while they are in my mind and then bring them out again for Labor Day.

    My husband too has a hatred of buttons - just on pillows though.
