Zig Zag

A friend wanted to make a flag for her friends house which was becoming 100yrs old this month. She used two shower curtain liners. She cut the first one flag size with the grommets on the correct edge. Then she cut the numbers and letters out of the other and spray glued them on. She was going to zig zag stitch them on to withstand the shore breeze. Her sewing machine would not cooperate with her so I got the job. I've never done zig zag before but with the help of the instruction book it was a breeze and great fun. What can I zig zag next ???
It is fun to see the flag flying.

I foresee lots of new projects involving zig zag in your future...oh the things you can embellish. How fun that her house is 100 years old and that you could help her celebrate.

I struggled with the zigzag stitch for a while before I got the hang of it. It can be addicting! Using a shower curtain is a great idea for a project like this.
