Summer 2010, when my kids were two and three, we made adorable handprint American flag tank tops to wear. I didn't want to get rid of them when that summer was over, so I tossed them in my to-sew stack with the intent to make something out of them. Tonight, in my on-going project to turn the guest room into a den/school room, I was cleaning out my sewing cabinet and came across them. I decided it was as good a time as any, and whipped out a throw pillow. It'll live on my long bench in the entry way during 4th of July time. It's going to be SO cute!!
I cut out the flags, ironed some stabilizer on the backs of them, and then stitched them onto some red twill I had in my stash. I made it into a pillow shape, and now it just awaits me buying another bag of polyfill to stuff it and finish it up. Maybe I'll remember to do that between now and July.
