Fabric Flags

Inspiration

Inspired by a pin I saw on Etsy, I embarked on a creative journey to craft smaller versions of fabric scrap flags. These miniature banners are perfect for adding a soft, whimsical touch to my store’s limited wall space.

DIY Fabric Flags

Materials and Process

Materials:

  • Wooden dowels (12 inches long, 3/8” diameter)
  • Blue and red fabrics (amount depends on strip length
  • Washing machine/dryer

I cut strips about 1½ inches wide and 18 inches long. After cutting some strips with a rotary cutter for a neater finish, I washed and dried them for a frayed edge. Folding the strips in half, I fed them through the fold to secure them around the dowel.

I used three blue fabrics and four red fabrics, each with different patterns. This was an excellent way to use leftover remnants.

Note: Washing the strips gave them a frayed look but also meant ironing and trimming strings—something I might skip next time for convenience.

These projects brought a patriotic flair to my store, creating a welcoming and respectful atmosphere for Memorial Day while being practical enough to reuse for upcoming summer holidays.

I hope these ideas inspire you to create your own meaningful decorations for Memorial Day and beyond!
