Hi Ladies!

Ready to sew along with me today?

Put some flip flops on, make an iced tea (or a long island iced tea depending on how much you want to party,)  and pretend that it is summer and you are getting ready for July 4th!! =)

Let’s make some flags.

For each flag you will need:

2 red or blue strips cut at 1 1/2 x 7 1/2

1 white strip cut at 1 1/2 x 7 1/2

2 red or blue strips cut at 1 1/2 x 10 1/2

2 white strips cut at 1 1/2 x 10 1/2

1 red or blue square cut a 3 1/2 x 3 1/2

Stand back and look at how cute your little flag is! It should measure 7 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches.

Hum the National Anthem while you make 3 more flags.  Two Red and Two Blue.

I’ve added (hopefully) a linky for us to share our blocks and progress. That way we can easily visit each other as we sew along.

I’ll see you back here on Wednesday for the Star block!
