Ever since we started this blog a question that has been asked over and over again has been “where do I get flags?” (along with the complaint: “how am I ever going to remember all the different flags?”) There has been talk of us starting up a business selling flags but that isn’t going to happen anytime soon so I thought I’d give y’all some tips:
Dig through your local op shops scarf bins for flags
Go to a fabric shop (like Lincraft or Spotlight) and get the fabric and/or colour that you want, cut and sew it into a flag.
As for symbols, often the less classy (more trashy) option is taken of using a permanent marker to draw onto the flag the symbol you want.
If you have the time and inclination, cross stitch it onto your flag.
You could also have patches with the symbol on it that you could pin to your flag and then use with other flags/combinations.
Trade flags or share them around (this is a good way to get a collection of flags of things that you are really into but are having a hard time finding).
You can make gingham flags from tea towels!
Don’t forget Ribbons Can Be Flags.
And our friends at Worn Dress Designs with their Etsy store. Keep an eye on them because they are always coming out with new designs.
