Flag Garland

Hello again!
Today I wanted to share with you a project I finished a few weeks ago and gave to my Aunt as a birthday gift.  One of my cousins is former Navy and another one of her sons is currently in the Army, so this had special meaning to her.
It was my first sewing pattern out of a book and I learned some new skills.
I learned how to machine appliqué/quilt (at least a little bit).  The pictures don't do it justice but I did sew along the lines of the flag and around the blue field.
I also used some fusible interfacing (Heat n Bond) to help me create the flag look and hold things together.
And brushed up on my hand sewing.

Have a great rest of the week!

Pattern is from Art To Heart Easy Does It Patriotic
