Is it autumn already? Yes, and time for a new season of garden flags! After finally deciding on cotton canvas duck for the garden flags we have it down to go into production with colorful autumn designs for felines and nature, and one specifically for Meow-lo-ween.
About the flags
All my flags are 11″ x 15″ including the foldover for the pocket, printed on one side. They are printed on cotton duck canvas with a commercial quality fabric transfer. It leaves a little bit of body but no real stiffness, and rarely curls from wetness or cold like other fabric transfers. The professional-quality transfer is intended for light fabric so covers the fabric without the feeling of vinyl and holds the art well.
Here are the three feline designs with links to where you can purchase them, or you can skip to the Garden Flags page in my Handmade Gift Gallery. I typically stock all garden flags shown there though I only print smaller quantities, usually no more than six at a time. If you’d like a quantity of flags, or a custom flag, please send me an email.
Don’t look too closely at the stitching on these flags—my sewing machine needing a little oiling when I made these. I haven’t had the chance to rephotograph them but I can assure you they look neater than this.

Only Good Luck Black Cats
“Only Good Luck!” is a design I put together on Friday the 13th of September 2019.
“Full moon, black cats and Friday the 13th all come together for good luck! I decided to make a little graphic with a photo of Mimi and The Four Housecats of the Apocalypse and one of my Harvest Moon photos. Well, this photo actually includes Basil and not Mr. Sunshine, but in silhouette, who really knows?”
I’ve intended to make it into a garden flag as soon as I worked out the best way to make them, and this is the year. And it’s not just for Meow-lo-ween because any day of the year is a good day to celebrate the good luck that black kitties bring to us!
And here is the original photo, which I titled “A sweet but blurry welcome”. Let that be a lesson about tossing blurry photos!
I had a few other ideas for autumn flags that involved both art and photos, so we’ll see what sort of time I have to play around!Other items with the same art or design To find all items on this site with the same art or design, use the search box for the name of the artwork and you'll find all that's available.
