I started working on the flag wall hanging. I was eager to start on it to see if it was going to work and how it was going to look. Since I only have a month to work on it, I wanted to make sure I could do it in that time. I actually think I can get this done in a week, barring any unforeseen events. The instructions suggest using fusible thread. I couldn't find any locally, so decided I'd use fusible interfacing. Using fusible interfacing will make it stiffer and more bulky, and adds extra layers, but I think that's ok since it is a wall hanging and not a quilt. I started with the flag pole, sewing the fabric and fusible, right side together, and then cutting a small hole on the interfacing side to turn it.
Don't forget to mirror image your design before tracing the pieces.
