The Cowgirl Flag with Sheryl Johnson!!
I had seen this flag on display last year at AU at the Lipstick Ranch vendor booth.
When I saw it was being offered as a class this year, I knew I had to take it!!
Because I am a neutral kind of girl I already knew I would have to change the colors a bit so I could hang it and be happy with it.
Kim brought that fabulous tan ticking fabric which worked out perfect for the large stripe and backing for the "cowgirls". The rest is a hodge podge of different fabrics including some of the new Tim Holtz fabric line. Also laces, some mother of pearl buttons, appliques and muslin.
Not really thrilled with these pictures but the room I have it hung in does not have the best light for a novice picture taker like myself:( I must have played with my camera for a good hour and then did some editing. This is what I got and it's ok but only seeing it in person can you really appreciate how big and beautiful it is.
This project was a beast but so worth it! The final size of it is 4ft by 3ft. All 50 of those "cowgirls" had to be cut and then stitched through a sewing machine. No easy feat I tell you!! The only other sewing was on the ticking strips to give it a stitched look. Which we ran through the machine before gluing. That's the secret to this project. It is all glued!!
Or else I'd still be there;)
That was the last project of my AU adventure!! All five are completed and have found their place in my home.
Can't wait for next year!!
Thanks for following along and a big thanks for all the kind comments about my work!!
