There is something about all the pink and hearts surrounding Valentine’s Day that makes me happy. It’s all so cute, you know? And I am definitely a sucker for anything cute!
I’d been brainstorming Valentine’s Day ideas for a few weeks when I thought of the darling mini flags I had spotted at Paper Source. I loved the cute inspirational messages, and I thought, why not make my own Valentine’s Day flag?
First, I created the Always + Forever design. (Scroll to the end of the post for the free printable, or create your own design with PicMonkey.) Then I printed my design on the fabric.
This was my first time using printable fabric, and I sense an addiction coming on! It was super easy to work with and my print turned out great … even using my crappy printer.
After the design was printed, I used Stitch Witchery to bond the seams together. If you’ve never used this wonderful product before, you are going to love it. Basically, Stitch Witchery fuses fabric together when heated with a hot iron; no sewing required.
This cute No Sew Valentine’s Day Flag took minutes to make, and I’m so happy with how it turned out! I think I’m going to make a few to send to friends and family.
- free Always + Forever printable (there’s a free file at the end of the post)
- printable fabric sheets
- Stitch Witchery (fusable bonding web)
- 3/8-inch diameter dowel (cut 8.25-inches long)
- baker’s twine
Start by printing the Always + Forever file on a sheet of printable fabric. Check your print settings to make sure you are not shrinking the file to fit the page. You want the stripes to print as close to the edge of the fabric as possible.
Carefully remove the paper backing from the fabric, then press the fabric with a hot iron to set the colors.
Use a hot iron to press folded fabric toward back of flag, then trim excess fabric about 1/2-inch from fold.Repeat process on other side of flag.
Insert Stitch Witchery into seams and press with iron to bond the seam closed.
