Fabric pillow panels are sold by the yard which will give you 4 panels and usually a matching themed boarder which will make 2 mini garden flags.
This method will give you 2 mini flags with your picture theme on both sides for viewing. If you have matching solid color fabric, just cut squares to the same size as your panel and sew together the same way and this will give 4 mini flags with the backs in solid color to use in areas where you do not mind the back of the flag being visual.
Fabric pillow panels are sold in any fabric department and are sold by the yard for $4.00 or even less. They come in all seasonal themes as well as other themes like animals, etc. They are light weight 100% cotton which wash up wonderfully. Simple and fast to create. Create your own one-of-a-kind mini flag for yourself or as gifts and enjoy the compliments you will receive.
The 2 panels are sewn together then turned inside out, the border being turned over under the selvage edges and lapped over the top of the open end panel and sewn across the panel horizontally, using a decorative stitch and leaving a 1 inch opening in the casing to slide it through the metal garden poles top. Use whatever decorative stitch your machine offers. If you do not have a decorative stitch on your machine, a single stitch will work just fine.
This watermelon theme was perfect for summer and only cost me $1.00 per yard on sale. Search for theme fabric pillow panels like 4th of July or birthday or your favorite animals like horses, etc. and have fun making them to enjoy!

Love it! Great work!
Great idea. I see the one I bought has been shredded by the wind.
wouldnt that regular material get moldy?? i had thought about cloth but then the mold came to mind and said no.
what a great idea.. and could easily be taken off and washed when needed
mold is not an issue if you spray them first with scotch gaurd and let dry well then hang up.
