    It was very easy. I am going to try some more soon... It took me about 2 hours start to finish, but it was my first time. I may do a few things differently with the next one. The method is super simple though.

    Turned out very cute! Love the strawberry fabric! Did you use my method? Since you added the book to the picture just wondered. Rhonda

    I did use your method... of course I messed up and didn't press my seams open... so it was a bit bulky.. but lesson learned. I just added a book to the picture to show the size. I loved doing it. I will play more with them this weekend. That was just a quicky test.

    I am so glad you liked them! They are my favorite thing to do. You get interesting looks and it doesn't take a long time to finish them! Ilove how yours turned out! Cute fabric!

    I should have sent the SASE to you for the template.. I had template making plastic but it was very thin and I kept cutting into it with the rotary cutter. So I cut out 4 squares of it, superglued them together and cut them to size... wala! Worked like a charm.

    I am glad you got it to work! Whatever works right? Now for some pictures!!

    If you decide you still want a template just pm me your postal address!

    Interesting idea! I have never made a flag and that is really a cute way to make a bookmark! I like your colors!

    I was trying to figure out how to make it more of a star then a pinwheel. But haven't figured it out yet... I love the first one I did, but for something so small I like having the crips lines of these colors, it shows off the pattern more.
