DIY: Semi-Circle American Flag10:57 AM
In light of the upcoming American holiday I found it fitting to create a little patriotic decor for my home. I love my country and am truly proud and grateful to be an American. What a beautiful country it is!
This was a simple project that I just kinda figured out as I went. I have always loved the semi-cirlce flags that I see at this time of year. They are so timeless.
I bought 2 yards of each color of fabric. (This was more than enough)
I cut the fabric into wide strips and pieced it together to make it even longer.
I then sewed a basting stich and ruffled each piece up.
I did make sure that each layer was shorter going up. I just eye-balled it. (Ex. I used all 2 yards of fabric for the very bottom ruffle, and just a few inches less of that for the blue layer and so forth...)
Finally I sewed it all together connecting right sides together. I started by sewing the smallest strip onto a small red semi-circle and went down from there.
TA DA! That was it. It was incredibly simple to make and took no time at all. I completed it from stat to finish during my kiddos' naps.
