Pics of my Flag Bag and Wreath decorations. The Crow is dangling the little fabric Americana Heart by a silver thread from his mouth. He picked it up cause it's shiny!

Love all the extra details you added, like the red beads on the bottom, the red berry picks and the rusty stars and bell--those are like the icing on a cake. Good job. Luvs

Oh I love the bag and the sheep wreath. My entire porch room is done in patriotic. Is there a pattern for that sheep? That is just the neatest thing.

Again, thank you for the nice comments.

Linda, everything on the Sheep Wreath is store bought. I'm sure you could make up a pattern. One thing I did for the metal stars is instead of buying them individually, I bought the whole metal star wreath and used wire cutters to cut them off. Those stars are about $3.99 individually and the whole wreath with 22 stars on it (large, medium and small ones) was $20 so I definitely got a deal at about $1 a piece.

Craftylady, you sure did get a deal by purchasing the star wreath and cutting it apart. That was using your head for more than a hatrack. LOL I've studied and studied that sheep and will "attempt" to create something similar. Wish me luck....I sure am going to need it. LOL Is that flag painted on in the center or is it a separate piece?

Craftylady, I took your advise and made my own pattern. I didn't make mine prim as I didn't have the correct paint colors. Regardless, I am happy with how it turned out.

Linda, it's beautiful and I think it looks fantastic without it being "prim." What did you use for fabric? I didn't see your earlier post till just now but I can see you figured out that yes, the flag was painted on. Excellent job!!!

Thank you Craftylady. The material I used is muslin. I have a whole big roll of it that my sister gave me. She also has a big roll. Together we have enough muslin to last many lifetimes. LOL Looks like my grandkids will get mine some day. Sis says hers will too.
