Denim and lace - fabric flag
These fabric flags are a great way to use up scraps of denim fabric and left over pieces of lace or ribbon and they are easy to create. I used different widths of lace in red and white. 7 red and 6 white. I used hot glue to attach the lace to the denim, but you could machine or hand stitch them as well. Let me tell you how…
One rectangle of denim (approx. 11”x 8”)
4 pieces of red ribbon 32 inches long
3 pieces of red ribbon 48 inches long
3 pieces of white lace 32 inches long
3 pieces of white lace 48 inches long
1 piece of white lace approx. 35 inches long (for hanging)
1 piece of white lace 8 inches long
Hot glue gun and glue
Fabric star patches or cut out stars (I used 18 because they fit nicely)
Start by folding the denim over the dowel (approx. 3 inches, leaving an 8”x 8” square) and glue it to itself.
Fold one of the 32 inch pieces of red lace in half and glue the folded part to the bottom, back of the denim vertically and even with the outside edge. Fold one of the 32 inch pieces of white lace in half and glue beside the red one…
Repeat this process until you have the 4 red and 3 white 32 inch pieces glued vertically from the bottom of the denim square.
Glue the 8 inch piece of white lace across the bottom of the denim to cover the glued part of the vertical pieces of lace that you just attached.
Fold a 48 inch white piece of lace in half to form a loop, loop it back around the dowel and bring the ends through. Pull to tighten. Repeat until you have 3 white and 3 red 48 inch pieces attached.
Fold the 35 inch piece of white lace in half and form a loop, tie a knot at the top of the loop to hang it from.
Tie one end of the same piece of lace to one side of the dowel and the other end to the other side of the dowel, (be sure it is even on both sides) allow some extra to hang down from the knots.
Glue on the stars. Hang and enjoy!
