I just put a new garden flag at my front walk. He is from a set of "drunken roosters" that I have had for years. He was to have white feathers, but I just did the outline. He replaces my "mule xing" flag that was faded. Isn't he cute? I'm having fun with my flags!

He is very cute and the bright yellow is very cheerful. I am in the process of making a garden flag for my sister out of water resistant nylon, I read your comment to Toogie's post, and was wondering if you tried an outdoor fabric and if that would be any better than the nylon, fabric such as Solarium or Sunbrella? Another question, how does the thread hold up to the outdoors?

Love the rooster! I think making the flag from nylon is a fabulous idea. Much better than burlap, as it dries quickly. I need to find mine now and try it. Excellent work!

Cute! He looks carefree.

I have been wanting to make me another flag however, I don't know what fabric to use, to keep from fading and waterproof. What have you used? The afternoon sun is on my front so it will be in the sun most of the day.

Fabric is rip-stop nylon. I've made many flags, usually the big ones that hang from the pole on the house, and always pieced together in a pattern of some kind. Even if seasonal or holidays, they all faded eventually. I'm tired of the work. Like you, Toogie, I get direct sun on front after noon..it shines up a street, focused on my house front until it sets. No trees in the street to block it; only small dogwood trees in the yard. My paint takes a beating! So I now satisfy my flag fetish with these small ones. Not so much labor or waste. Your fabric store ( like joanns), tho mine was found at big fabric store. It's much more fun embroidering designs than cutting patterns!

Curious minds want to know. I had a bought one that faded bad.

Why do you put flags on your front door??
Is it an US thing or do you just do it to brighten up the entry?? Just curious.

It is not uncommon to put a garden flag up in a front yard. It does brighten everything and it is a welcoming touch. It is a good question!! Hugs, Laura
