American Flag Table Runner

When I found this long, thin American flag at a yard sale I wasn't thinking this...

But the idea hit me when I was cleaning out the basement and found the flag. 

I was wondering what I was ever going to do with it. 

My first thought was to hang it from the gazebo we built out on the deck.

As I passed the kitchen table it struck me.

This would make a GREAT table runner for the summer!

It was more than long enough for my extra long farmhouse table.

It's even long enough if I add the 2 huge leaves in the table.

So that's where the flag landed and that's where it stays!
