Fourth of July Rag Flag Window


So I'm a little bit of a procrastinator, but technically my project was finished just in time for the 4th of July, even if it was the morning of!
Using one of my old window frames, I measured and stapled in 13 jute strings across the back. Next, I cut several strips of red, white and blue fabric and tied it onto the string to create a US flag. I added 50 stars.. yep, all 50, and then created a cute banner to go across the top.
It may be last minute, but I think it turned out great! What do you think?

    I so love this. I love anything rag! I have made rag skirts for my girls, tons of blankets, etc. you name it....Just love the rustic look about it. Never in a million years did this pop into my head! Thanks for the awesome idea. Happy creating! :) I do have a question? Did you use an old window or did you just build one? Sorry, to lazy to click your link to look it up! Thanks!
