Shabby and Cottage Style Americana Boho Flag

Hey everyone! I wanted to share with you these cute flags. They are everywhere….I’ve seen them on sewing sites and they are so cute I had to make some in miniature. They have a Shabby/Boho/Cottage flavor to them. But for someone who sews, they are wonderful because of all the various fabrics that can be used! These are little and fun to make.IMG_5664


So I started looking through my stash, picking fabrics…Americana, reds and blues, then coastal colors, then shabby colors. Before you know it I had yards and yards of fabric, that I would only use a little bit of, and snipped it into 1/2″ wide strips that were several inches long. I also got out all kinds of laces and trims, making strips for the flags from those too.


My shop has the picture pattern and directions if you want to see how to make them.

They  are wonderful for res-purposing your lace, trims, buttons, and extra fabric. You can go for a modern look, Americana look, or shabby, prim look….I have made several so far! I just love them.IMG_5671

How fun! It is a wonderful little pattern, and yet gives very cute results!

I hope you make several. I’d love to see your creations!
