My father, who is originally from Italy, likes to display an Italian and a U.S. flag on his front porch.  Well it has been difficult to find an Italian flag that will hold up for more than a few months.  My family and I bought numerous flags online only for them to be shredded to bits in a short period of time.  So what is my brainy idea?  Why not make him one?  I went to the local fabric store and purchased flag material (technical term?) and shortly after wards got to sewing.  3 sewing needles later and wallah:





Silly me forgot to take a picture before it was hung up outside so sorry about the pics.  And let me say thank goodness that the Italian flag is only 3 blocks of colors otherwise I may have given up as this was not the easiest fabric i have ever worked with.  In the end it was definitely worth it though as my dad was thrilled to have a new flag.

At least with you making it you can super sew the seams (another technical term  Grin) so it doesn't shred up.

Handmade is just better
