I bought a few cheap flags off ebay.
When I got the orange flyer with the mascot on, I knew it would look great on a flag.
Photocopied the mascot on the flyer, increased size by 200% and then printed it off poster size. (9 sheets of A4 that needed to be cut and sellotaped together).
Then it was the ever trusty Saral paper. (Hence several blue smudges that will go onced washed). Once the design was transferred, I tried using fabric paint but the flag is too transparent and it wasn't looking too good, so I switched to permanent marker that I knew won't wash out or run. It will fade a bit but not too worried as it is designed for this Halloween only.
Then it was a simple colouring in job. It only took a couple of hours to complete and I am really satisfied. If I can find a more suitable fabric paint, I will remake it. It will look great for this years carving party
I've just ordered 4 more orange flags and plan to hang them from the eves of the house for Halloween.
in the name of The Carver and the holey Gourd. Amen.
