Sometimes good things come from a bout of insomnia. This sweet and shabby American flag came to life in the wee hours of the morning. I was inspired by this vintage ribbon and lace flag.
To create the stripes, I layered thirteen strips of torn fabric with bits of lace, ribbon, ric rac and pom-pom fringe.
The union was fashioned from fifty white buttons sewn to a piece of frayed denim. I love how it flutters in the breeze!
