I used remnants that I had on hand and even used scraps of worn out linen napkins. I embellished with small flags, cut out stars and buttons. When all was finished, I strung it on a clothes line, and hung it in our carport (which more often than naught, serves as our covered patio).
I cut triangles of 13 inches in length and 12 inches in width at the top. I cut 2 pieces at a time on the fold.
I then sewed with right sides together, leaving an opening of one inch on one side of the top and 2 inches on the other side (to make easier to right side out).
After turning right side out, I ironed and top stitched along the edge of top and sides; leaving a one inch opening on both sides of the top.
Using a zig zag stitch, I sewed on stars and flags.
I added buttons...
I then strung each flag onto clothes line, at the top where I had left the inch of space open.
May your Fourth of July holiday be blessed, as you celebrate our country with family and friends.
