Printable Fabric Flag Word Art

Every year when Spring rolls around, I get the urge to hit the refresh button. Pack away the sweaters, deep clean the fridge, and tweak my home decor.

This year I, Erin, wanted some new large scale art for my studio, but I didn’t have the budget to invest in a framed statement piece, so I threw out my preconceived ideas of what art should be. I decided to enlist fabric and something as simple as a beautiful word to create an impactful piece for my studio walls.

If you’re also looking for a home decor refresh, why not try a Printable Fabric Flag Word Art? They’re inexpensive and easy to personalize with your own favorite words.

Preheat your iron to the medium setting, no steam, and place the rough adhesive side of the Heat n Bond onto the backside of the black fabric. Place and hold iron on the paper liner for 2 seconds, and repeat until the entire surface is bonded.

Then print out the ‘magnifique’ letters on computer paper, and pin them to the front/face of the black fabric. You’ll need to cut two of the letter ‘I’. No need to go crazy with pins, just 4-7 on each to keep them in place.

Next, cut out all the letters, and remove the pins/paper pattern.

Turn and pin the edges of your muslin flag under 1/2″, and sew into place with 3/8″ seam allowance. This step is optional if you don’t have a sewing machine, but I like the finished edge as it prevents fraying over time.

Peel back the paper Heat n Bond liner on each letter and position on your banner. Use a t-square or ruler to eyeball their general positioning. To adhere into place, press each letter with a hot iron for roughly 6 seconds each. Last, but not least, tack up on your wall!

I chose ‘magnifique’, the french word for magnificent for my flag, as a way to usher in Spring on a high note, but the word options are endless! What word would you choose?

    So good!! I’m moving next month and already daydreaming about how I can fit this into my new place. :)

    I get the opposite urge Erin. I’m dreading spring cleaning, putting sweaters aways and busting out the shorts and crop tops sounds like udder torture. I wish I could bribe someone to do it for me. I’m constantly complaining about how bare my walls are, and no matter how many fun crafts I come up with to creatively fill my space I’m still working with over 50% of white walls. A printable fabric flag would look great in my bedroom. Love this idea.

    Whenever I think of word art I wonder who came up with the “Keep Calm” saying. I must admit it annoys me. Who ever said “Keep Calm and eat Cupcakes”
