    My DH's aunt is celebrating her 80th birthday next week. I wanted to make something special for her. She is still an avid golfer so this is what I came up with. Couldn't pass up the fabric. :) The flag is my first attempt at applique. The flag is loose (to wave in the wind :D ) and the numbers are charms I found at a fabulous bead store we have locally.

    I found the fabric at Gee-Gee's a LQS in Yelm Washington. Here's a link to their website (you can find the fabric under the sports section).

    That is so cute. The flag almost looks three D. Great fabrics. The back is even cool. Wonderful table runner. Thanks for sharing.

    As a golfer myself, I have to say that is just the cutest thing I've ever seen. She's going to be nuts over it!

    How creative! That is just the thing for an avid golder & if she's still playing at 80, maybe she'll make it to 90.
