What happened to September? Is it autumn already? Yes, and time for new garden flags! After a summer of experimentation with different materials and processes, we are ready to go into production with new designs for felines and nature.
Mimi modeled this autumn design way back in the spring when I made the first few samples. I had intended to wait until autumn to offer this, but it sold well over the summer to visitors who saw it in my yard. I’ll still feature it with my autumn designs too because it’s a September daily sketch from 2013!
About the flags
My new flags are 11″ x 15″ because my largest fabric transfers are 11″ x 17″, then I fold the top over for the pocket. They are printed on only one side, but you can see the design really well from the back anytime during daylight, as you can see below.
They are printed on cotton muslin with a light fabric transfer finished with a “hot peel”, which means I peel the backing off of it within seconds of opening the heat press, leaving minimal plastic coating on the fabric. It leaves a little bit of body but no real stiffness, and never 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.
I am considering a few other autumn favorites that are photos, and I plan to make them next week, now that I’ve replaced the printer that made this whole thing difficult!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.
