Fab, Fab, Fabulous Fourth of July!

Standard

Summer! We’re in full swing around here. Holiday vacation looms, and I couldn’t resist featuring a collection of Fourth of July cuteness on today’s blog.

Just a week before the Fourth of July! The stars-n-stripes patterns abound. Make one as written, or adapt the color scheme to reflect any season, even your favorite sports team!

Fabulous Fourth Pillow

I love this sofa pillow! Display it all summer, from Memorial to Labor Day, or make one for your favorite veteran, anytime. Free pattern link below.

Super Stars

If you are like me, you can make crochet flag stripes, maybe, without a pattern. But the stars? Not so much. Here are two helpful links for applique stars:
