Deck the Deck

The 4th of July will be here before we know it!

We deck the halls for Christmas -- so why not deck the DECK for the 4th of July?  Don't have a deck? No problem.  Deck a picnic table, your front door, a mantle, or wall -- or your cubicle at work!

Today is Shameless Commerce Tuesday, and I've added this reversible15-flag patriotic bunting (12 feet total span, including 18-inch ties on each side) to the Buntings & Holiday Items section of my Etsy shop:   It's a cheery mix of stars, stripes, dots, checks and other red, white and blue cotton scraps.

Double-sided 6-inch flags are sewn together.  The edges are pinked to reduce raveling.  The flags are secured between layers of bias binding with a zig-zag stitch for extra durability. 

This bunting could also be used for any patriotic holiday -- Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day or Veteran's Day -- or to welcome home a returning veteran.  Orders placed by June 29 should arrive before the 4th of July.

Do you have any big plans for the 4th of July?

  1. nice banner! no plans as of yet but definitely want to get festive!

  2. Love your new banner! It would add flair to any patriotic event!

  3. Love the fabrics you chose for your bunting!
    Every 4th of July we head out to my father in law's farm. Can't wait!!

  4. Beautiful precise work! You definitely have "hands of gold"!

  5. Your bunting is so cute! Last year we watched the fireworks from the Wisconsin State Fair Park (a mile from our house) with some friends and are planning to do the same thing this year.

  6. I like the idea of decorating for the 4th. My mom does like to decorate for all reasons so I guess I am used to it. Nice bunting.

  7. Great idea! I'm having a family party Sunday and was trying to think of a way to make it festive. A bunting would be perfect to put around the decks!

  8. I'm a bunting freak and this one is just perfect!

  9. We're travelling over the 4th but this is a lovely idea!

  10. I love the "deck the deck" idea for the 4th!
    wonderful bunting!

    watched fireworks tonight with friends.
