Happy 4th of July

I wanted to share a quick project with you to help celebrate the upcoming holiday!  The project was done using a serger wide flat lock to put together red white and blue strips of fabric to form a flag wall hanging. The flatlock is created by tightening the lower looper tension and loosing the needle tension. I used one needle in the left position on my 4 thread serger. You can use decorative thread or regular thread on the upper looper.

The flag wallhanging uses rustic plaids and was hung from a twig to make a country statement. The project was done by one of my employees years ago but it is an oldie but a goodie.

Recently I recreated the same strip flag idea to make a placemat with my serger.  As you can see in the photo below the star blue square was serged separately and top stitched in place. You decide which one you like best!
