I've been sew busy

haha get it ... sew? Last night I finally finished my Olympic flag.  What took you all that time?  I hear you ask, well because my felt squares weren't wide enough I had to cut the circle into four quarters then sew them together.  Plus I'm still not very good with the sewing machine haha.  Don't look too closely at the straightness of the stitching it goes all over the place. haha  Good job it is being used as a flag up on a pole rather than closer to the eye as a table cloth.

 But here it is flapping in all it's glory!

Oh knickers I have just spotted a gap in the red ring that needs to be stitched up. Oh well out with the needles again.

It looks a great flag to me, Tracey. Well done!

Looks fab. Now if you'd used bondaweb you wouldn't have needed to sew it at all.

That's great Tracey, you would never know that the circles had been cut into quarters.

Well done, looks great! Will it make the kids run faster, do you think?!

Andria said...

Thats brilliant, well done coz i'm guessing circles are not the easiest shape to sew round :).

An amazing flag my lovely, it looks so neat and I wouldn't have noticed the gap if you hadn't said xxx

Sorry I've not been by for a while. Just having a catch up with all you posts.
Your flag looks absolutely fab - very professional. I wouldn't have noticed the gap either!
I've moved over to Chrome too - much quicker than IE 9 that I was using before. :)xx
