I’m so excited and honored to be here today! I’m a stay at home mom to a handsome 20 month old boy, a wife, daughter, sister, friend, baker, crafter, makeup and music lover and in February a blogger! I entered blogland searching for 1st Birthday party ideas and discovered a whole new world! And much like a lot of other bloggin’ lovelies I thought “I could do that!”
Now burlap is very popular and I have made 2 burlap flags already. So, I thought it time for a change and turned to muslin and ruffles.
- 1/2 yard of Muslin
- Fabrics to make ruffles…scraps, if long enough, would be perfect
- Hot glue gun
- Freezer paper or stencil
- Paint-I used Folk Art Acrylic Paint in Metallic Rose
- Paint brush or sponge Acrylic sealer
Started by using a store bought flag to measure and allowed about an inch for seams. I left the muslin folded so it would be double thickness and one less edge to ‘hem’. It’s not as long as the store bought flag but that’s okay.
Cut 3 strips of fabric, about 3 inches wide by 25 inches long. (the flag is 12 1/2 inches wide so I doubled it) I used 2 hot pink and 1 yellow ribbon as these speak fun summer colors to me!
