Hello Skip to My Lou friends! I am Kirstin, half of the sister team that blogs at kojodesigns, and I’m so excited to be here sharing a DIY flag banner with y’all today as part of this Bake Craft Sew & Decorate series.
Can I let you in on a little secret? I love giving handmade presents, but I love them best if they are really simple to put together (though, this coming from a girl who takes on a way-too-over-the-top-project or two every year and has one sitting in her sewing room presently).
This DIY flag banner is sweet, easy to tailor to your recipient and can be put together in one nap time. Lovely.
To make one, first cut out two flags. My finished flag is ten inches wide and 14 inches tall, but you can make whatever size you prefer. After both flags are cut, stack them, right sides facing in. Sew around the perimeter, leaving gaps in three places- two small gaps that will allow for a wooden dowel hanger and one gap along the top seam for turning the flag right side in.
After turning the flag right side in, press and top stitch around the entire perimeter, leaving the two small side gaps open. Print out your messages (I chose “You Are So Very Loved,” and “hello sunshine,” cut out letters, tape backwards to the back of a piece of leather and trace. Cut out leather letters and glue to flag with fabric adhesive.
Thread a dowel through the flag, add a twine hanger and give! Easy to make, fabulous as a handmade gift, perfect for Christmas!
