It finally dawned on me that the most practical and economical solution to get the flags that I wanted for my collection was to make them! I have no experience but I can make things so I figured I can learn. First of all, Acupuncture mast have been discovered by people who sew. I set up my sewing center. It looks easier than it is and my first flag will be purely for practice. I will give it to my wife to tea-stain. She says that will make it a "primitive". It is "primitive", even without the staining. But, my technique is improving and the next one will be better. Here is what I have so far. I am working on the stars. It will be a 21 star flag. I will post more pics as I go along.
