Memorial Day Flag Pillows

At the local craft fair, my flag pillows were a big hit!

Here is how I created these little lovelies...

I started with several 8" x 10" cotton flags that used to be part of a flag bunting that came apart. 

You can also use those cute little flags on sticks you can buy inexpensively at the dollar store near the summer holidays.

Using a salvaged piece of cotton curtain as the backing, I sewed three sides of the flag together using a sewing machine. 

I stuffed the flag with batting then hand stitched the final side closed.

These cute little flags are great for decorating shelves, filling a basket, or even as a festive accent on a chair.
