At the beginning of each summer I get the itch to make something that is related to our amazing FLAG. I think it is because school ends and then the 4th of July is right around the corner. This is my project for this summer.
The only part of this project I needed to buy was the inside fabric. I had all the red, white and blue and the buttons. To make this I just initially cut the dark blue fabric and then made the red and white stripes based on the size of the blue. The blue behind the buttons is denim from a pair of jeans. The same one from this bag. Wanted to break up some of the blue and use a different shade.
There are only 35 buttons for the states!!! Not sure which states are NOT represented, but I had to evict 15 of them!! Tee hee hee! Just kidding, I got lazy with the buttons, guess I could have added more, maybe I will someday.
I love the stars on the inside. Makes it a little brighter and fun.
Overall pretty easy project and useful!! Love taking it to the store so everyone can see it.
Thanks for looking and have a great day,
