Scissors
6 yrds Wonder Under- double faced fusible interfacing
Iron
Sewing Machine

20 feet 1/2 inch diameter rope
Nails and hammer 
Directions:
1. Cut 26 9 x 11.5 rectangles using all the colors.
2. Turn over ¼ inch on three sides and sew a zig-zag stitch. Turn over the fourth side 1 inch and sew a straight line across the bottom ¼ from the raw edge of the flag.
3. Take the rest of the fabric that wasn't used for the flags and back it with Wonder Under.
4. Cut out letters and shapes to go with each letter. You can use a stencil for the letters or get images from the Internet to trace. I freehanded all the shapes and adjusted as needed.
