Delightful Spring Garden Flags Using Cricut Iron-On

Create a set of custom garden flags for your favorite gardener using fat quarters and Cricut Iron-On.



Fat quarters (4 colors)
Cricut Iron-on (4 colors)
(I’m using this bundle - Love these colors!)
Double seam binding (one package - 4 yards)



Purchase the fabric for your project. I selected 4 solids in colors similar to my iron-on colors for a cohesive look. Four fat quarters will make 8 two-sided flags, each about 8.5 x 10.5 inches. Adjust the amount of fabric to make more flags or flags of different sizes.  Cut each fat quarter into 4 equal pieces.

Create your cut design in Design Space. I am using the following images included with Cricut Access.

Bloom Your Life Phrase (#MB157646)
Plant Icon (#MA314F5A)
Flower Plant Icon (#MA314F3F)
Flower (#M85EF0CF)

Make the project, taking care to mirror your designs before cutting. Weed the iron on.

Apply the iron-on to the flag front following the manufacturer's instructions using an EasyPress or household iron. (Side note - this was my first project using the EasyPress 2 and I have to say it was super slick! Much easier iron-on transfers than with my iron. If you’re on the fence about getting one, go for it. You won’t regret it!)

Pin the flag front to the flag back with right sides together. Sew along the sides and bottom of the flag. Clip the bottom corners at 45 degree angle as shown below.

Turn the flags right side out to prepare them for binding.

Organize the flags in the order you’d like them to appear in your finished banner. Find the center of the seam binding and place the flag in position 4 just to the left of the center. Pin the seam binding to the top edge of the flag.

Continue pinning the remainder of the flags to the seam binding in order, leaving about .25 inch between each flag. Sew the seam binding to the top of the flags. You should have about one yard of seam binding left at the ends of the banner to use to tie up the flags in the garden.
