When you have a half an hour until the party and a fantastic idea pops into your mind, what do you do? Ah yes, you use a glue gun and Mod Podge! This flag was so simple to make, it's ridiculous.
I Googled "Hogwarts crest," and found an image that was fairly large. I opened it in Photoshop, resized it to fit my 8.5x11 Inkjet Fabric Sheets, then printed it. Then I cut the three pieces of the crest from the sheet. (Here's where I wished I had iron on fabric sheets!) I didn't have time to sew the crest onto my black fabric background, so... I Mod Podged it! I used the Mod Podge as glue, only applying to the back of the printed fabric, so that the crest wouldn't look different on the flag. I folded my long black fabric in half, then used the glue gun to create a casing along the top (folded edge), where it would hang from the flag pole. I folded it in half lengthwise, cut a triangle from the bottom, opened it up, and hot glued the sides and bottom together. Basically I used the glue gun in place of my sewing machine, creating the casing and the seam. I love it when I can cheat on a project and it turns out so well! What do you think?
