Flag Day T-Shirt Tutorial

Today’s Flag Day T-Shirt Tutorial is a fun way to Celebrate Flag Day by making a A Flag t-shirt. You can follow the sewing tutorial below or use hot glue or fusible webbing to apply the design. Sewing is the most durable and detailed way to apply the Rick Rack and fabric. My Niece wore this one to their Flag Day celebration at school.
This would also be fun to use for the Fourth of July. You can change up the design and colors to make shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day, colored eggs or bunnies for Easter.
Materials:

1 t-shirt – I used an extra small youth t-shirt from Hobby Lobby to fit a 5-year-old. (Wash all fabric and t-shirt before sewing)
Star fabric – enough for a 5″ square before trimming (This is a great way to use up old fabric or worn out clothes)
Rick Rack – 1 package I used large (A cute way to make Easter eggs is to use different sizes and colors of Rick Rack.)
Pinking shears
Basic sewing materials

Step 1
Cut square from the star fabric. I used my 4.5″ square ruler

For added decoration and to decrease fraying trim with pinking shears. You can also use fray check if you want smoother edges.

If you have a removable base you may want to remove it to make the sewing easier.

Be sure to back-stitch the beginning and ends of each row and each corner of the square.

Project complete
as you wash the t-shirt the edges may fray a little. I think that adds to the beauty of the project.

My niece loves bows so I added a lace bow to the corner of the flag.
