Here’s what you will need:

Here’s how to make it:

Measure a rectangle of Red Eco-fi® Classicfelt™ Cut-by-the-Yard 14” by 36” and cut with pinking shears.

Layout lace and trims on the rectangle of Red Felt to create the white stripes of the flag.  Secure with felt glue, let dry.

Trace and cut two 15” wide stars Royal Blue Eco-fi® Classicfelt™ Cut by the Yard.  Attach to each end of the table runner with Felt Glue, let dry.  Patterns can be easily found online.

TIP: I use the Stabilo Aquarellable Pencils in White on dark colored felt and in Black on light colored felt for marking lines and tracing patterns prior to cutting.

Trace and cut two 5” wide stars from Neon Blue Eco-fi®  Classicfelt™ and two 5” wide stars from Cadet Blue Eco-fi®  Classicfelt™ and two 5” wide stars from White Eco-fi® Glitterfelt™ and cut out with pinking shears. Using the photo as your guide, attach to royal blue felt stars at each end of table runner with felt glue, let dry.
