A girl living in Tampa Bay for the last 11 years. I mostly fill my time with friends, creative hobbies like community theater and arts and crafts, movies and tv, and other random fun things to try.

GO USA! (Not that I'm into the World Cup or Anything)

So the week before the World Cup started and the US played England, Anne and I decided to make a variation of the revolutionary war battle flag which said "Don't Tread On Me." Of course, that flag was black and gold, and we wanted a red, white, and blue variation to show our colors. So we modeled it actually on the Nike logo of a similar vane.

So with a little of Anne's grid-making free-hand skills and a handy blade she had, we got some fabric, created a design, and hand-painted it ourselves. The star was cut out and sewn on, then the snake, white banner, and lettering is all hand-painted. A little trivia -- the original "Don't Tread On Me" banner was also hand-painted.
