The easiest way to make a flag is to draw it on paper. You need just three colours for this purpose including Red, Navy Blue and White. Now, it is your choice to use a pencil, pen, marker or a brush. You can also choose a different medium for drawing such as an oil painting, glass painting or fabric painting etc. First of all, make a rectangle with the help of a scale. Now draw a square on top left corner inside the rectangle. Fill the square with the colour of blue and leave space for fifty stars which represent the total number of states in the USA. Lastly, draw double lines inside the rectangle other than the square section and apply the red colour between these lines.
After drawing the American flag on a piece of paper, you will have a clear idea of how to give it a tangible form while using fabric. Buy fabric, preferably silk, consisting of three colours: red, blue and white respectively. Cut the white fabric to make a star-shape with the help of sharp scissors. Make fifty stars and sew them on to the fabric (blue) with the help of a sewing machine. Now, sew the piece of cloth (white stars on blue background) to the right corner of the entire piece of cloth (white). Lastly, cut the cloth (Red) into identical lengths and sew them onto the cloth with regular intervals.
You can also make the American flag on your computer using any type of illustration software. There are als0 many templates that you can d0wnload from the internet that allow you to have the perfect frame of the American flag. All that is left is to add some colour and print it out.
