    I am not going by any pattern, winging this one myself. Here is the star pattern I am using and I thought the flag came out pretty darn good too. Just had the right fabric so I went for it.

    Any suggestions?

    Love your flag & stars.....Your stars are adorable....What pattern did you use for them......My grandson got back from a year in Iraq and I think would love that......I sent 50 wildlife & patriotic pillowcases to him & his whole unit....He was a crew chief on a black hawk helicopter.
