|Choose some festive fabrics - I decided to use a red and white theme.|
Cut out 34 triangles – this is enough for 17 flags with front and back fabric with the lettersM E R R Y C H R I S T M A S and a flag at the beginning, end and middle. I made mine 15 cm wide by 15 cm long.
|Cut out your letters and shapes and use them as a template to draw on to the paper side of some bondaweb. You need to draw your letters back to front on to the bondaweb so they will be the right way round once ironed on to your fabric.|
|Cut out your letters.|
|Iron your bondaweb letters on to the centre of your flags. Again think about your choice of colour I placed my white letters on to red flags and red letters on to white flags to create a nice contrast. |
Sew round the edges of your letters with a small zig zag stitch.
Pin the back triangles on to your flags.
Sew round the edges of your flags you can do this with a zig zag stitch, a straight stitch, an over locker or you could do blanket stitch by hand.
Finally sew your flags on to a length of ribbon!
