    If you have ever made your own Garden Flag, what and where did you get the material. I've read that spun polyester 2 ply is best but I have no idea where to get it.
    Attached is a picture of a shower curtain I made to match a quilt. Should have been making them all along to match quilts I make for others. New applique too. Now on to the Garden with a little help from my quilting friends.

    You can buy flag nylon at JoAnns and probably Hancocks.

    You can use oilcloth. It's waterproof. Comes in gorgeous colors!!

    Has anyone ever made one out of oil cloth? I can't see how that would work. When I made mine I machine appliqued and then cut away the backing so the design showed through on both sides. The oil cloth has a "net type" backing on it and I don't think you could applique on it very well. Just my thoughts. Maybe you have in mind something entirely different that what I am thinking about. Let us know how it works out if you do use oil cloth.

    I have used kite nylon. Some of the kite manufacturers sell material so people can design and make kites and some intensely amazing banners. I think I got stuff from Into The Wind years ago (and that stash is lost in the basement mess at the moment).

    and seeing these is why I ordered the rip-stop nylon. I wanted to make some of my own!

    I haven't tried that yet, but what a great idea.
