Crochet Pattern: Patriotic Flag

To those of us who live in the United States of America, the three colors that make up our flag is the essence of patriotism. When Betsy Ross sewed the first American flag, little did she know the effect it would have on her growing country. And yet it’s hard not to take it all for granted. During these summer patriotic holidays let’s try to keep in mind how blessed we are to be Americans! Patriotic Flag

    I’m a little late with this…I remember it being posted on the blog a few weeks ago…but now I’m busily making patriotic stuff for Independence Day and am so glad this is here! I will be making at least one. Probably more. We always decorate for the 4th of July (and usually Memorial Day, too), and this will be much nicer to have on display than store bought tinsel stuff!
