    Update: HF Flags & DIY HF Flag Kits

    Here's the first HF Flag I've made.



    My daughter is helping me with this project. We'll soon have finished flags in the mail!

    We'll also have a DIY kit with fabric and patterns, so that you don't have to buy a yard of each color to make one or two flags. We'll include what we've learned in the instructions. It's a challenge to make the two black silhouettes (one on each side) line up while you stitch them!

    The text will be optional. The flags we make will be hand lettered, using a permanent marker. My daughter will have a sample soon.

    Orders are still on hold, but it won't be long now!

    Those three words will be part of the instructions, for sure!

    I've figured out a way to make assembling five pieces significantly easier.

    1) Fold the black fabric in half and sew it shut, then cut two silhouettes out as one. That way, the silhouettes will be identical.

    2) Stitch the silhouettes onto the sun circles first, then stitch the sun circles onto the flag. It's easier to line the silhouettes up on 7" circles than on the 12" X 18" flag. Glue one silhouette to a sun circle and sew, then line the other silhouette up so it's in the exact same orientation on it's sun circle (but as a mirror image), glue and sew.

    3) Glue one sun circle (with it's silhouette already attached) onto the flag and sew. Then, line up the other sun circle (with it's already attached silhouette) to match the first one, glue and sew.

    HF Flag

    Something the color of the actual HF Flag.
    Printed on the material, not a sewn on patch.
    Just my opinion.

    Something like this:

    Gotcha... problem is, we can't meet the minimum order quantity for printed flags. If you have a way around that, please let me know!
