What materials did you use? Simple Curves Ruler by Phillips Fiber Art - and an Embroidery Machine AND NO, THERE IS NOT A PATTERN FOR THIS - YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT UP YOURSELF. AS I DID :-)

What are you most proud of? Have made many flags, and have given them all away. (Surprised to walk into someone's house and to see the display of the flag, and then realize 'Hey, I made that! :-) )BUT this one is a 'Keeper'. And I am NOT done yet! :-) I am making one more, even Better - and that one will be going to my oldest son, who served 29 years in the US Marine Corp, and is currently doing his same job for the Military, but as a Civilian.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience - as a Seam Ripper was 'joined at my hip' during this process. But I LOVED what I was making and therefore didn't mind all the re-doing. ie. had 36 stars in place before I realized that I had too many rows - and had to remove 26 that were previously sewn down. Also once I had all 50 sewn down, there were a few that I moved over just a bit. And for the stripes - there were 32 seams that I wanted lined up PERFECTLY so there were quite a few 'rip outs' there. What I FINALLY did was to loosely sew at each connecting seam, check it out, rip out if need be, re-sew until I got it right, then sewed the whole seam. LOTS and LOTS of FUN to make - and SOOOO worthwhile. :-)
