    Thanks all. The dimensions are 29 1/2" x 42 1/2". It was bigger but we had to trim it down because when sewing strips they are just never even. We were lucky because our red bandana and white stripe fabric was 60".

    Actually, we had no pattern. One of the ladies saw a picture of this rag flag thrown over a chair on pinterest, so one of the ladies just looked at that picture and came up with our pattern. I know it isn't to scale but it is within reason. Stripes are all 3 1/2" wide. Seams are all 3/4". We used flannel as our batting, so after I washed and dried it twice, it is very soft. My daughter asked me why I didn't make it bigger because it was so cozy that it would be a great blanket. I just tossed it on my formal dining room table where I think it will stay a while since I will be hosting the 4th of July.

    What a great idea. Your friends were fortunate you agreed to do all the cutting.

    What a cool idea, love it!! I am a patriotic fanatic, have made 5 patriotic quilts, patriotic vest, placemats, a yo-yo flag table topper, table runner, small rag flags and have various other collectibles. Thanks for sharing.

    That looks great! I know how long it can take to clip. I did a king size one. Never again.

    I really like that. If you use it as a table topper, is it difficult to sit things on with the fringe?

    What a cool wall hanging. It is now on my bucket list. I'm going to live until I'm 305 so I can finish all my projects. LOL

    Not at all. It is very soft once it is washed a few times.
