DIY Jazz Fest Flag

Jazz Fest is this weekend and many will be meeting up with friends or family. A DIY flag is the perfect way for them to spot you in a crowd. Follow instructions below to make your own Jazz Fest flag.

What you will need:

  • Flag material (I bought mine at Hancock fabrics for $8)
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors 
  • Scrap paper 
  • Pins

Cut out material into a rectangle, leaving a 1/2 inch on all sides to hem. I used a 3/8 of a yard. Hem the sides of the flag, I used purple thread so that the hemming will not be noticeable. 

Fold a large piece of scrap paper in half, sketch out a fleur de lis and cut out. Trace the fleur de lis onto a second color of fabric. I used a 1/2 yard of yellow flag material for this. 

Cut out your fabric fleur de lis and pin it to the hemmed rectangle. 

Sew around the design to keep it in place.
