Crochet Pattern: American FlagBy Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
|I’m sure some of you are firing up the grill, buying corn on the cob at the farmer’s market and stocking up on your secret BBQ sauce. Perhaps you’re thumping away at the watermelons in the garden looking for a perfectly ripe melon to wow your 4th of July guests. While you prepare for all the festivities take a little time to remember that our freedom came at a cost. Brave men and women have carried our flag into battle for our freedom. This week, make a few of these flag pins to share with those who have served in the military, as well as your family and friends.|
