I have been exploring mixed media a lot recently and being a sewer and a stamper an article I found on flags really intrigued me. I just dipped my toe into the water on this with this project but I love it anyway! The image may be requested at the Facebook group or bought at the Dragons Lair Designs Store on Etsy (link below). I used the top hem of an old sheet (no tab needed!) and ripped the edges. I layered on a floral piece tearing the edges again and then a piece of burlap with the edges tattered. I sewed all of the pieces together with a dark thread and zig zag stitch. The next step was to dye a used (but cleaned!!) dryer sheet with a robin's egg blue stamp pad and some water smushed together. After it dried, I ripped it and mashed it up as a nest and glued to the top of my fabric flag. I could have sewn and probably will next time. The the debate whether to glue the image on or sew and sewing won out! It is not perfect but that was what I was going for. I stamped "Spring", a bird cage, and lovely little blue bird on the casing on which the flag hangs. And now it will go hang in my kitchen window to encourage the birdies!!
P.S. I have hand sanitizer and starch in small mister bottles in the shop and grabbed the hand sanitizer instead..yep the letters ran some but I still liked the results!
