Single-appliquéd Stars

Views: 4081 Added: 04/10/2009 Updated: 04/10/2009
Single-appliquéd Stars  [on an American national flag] — A type of star application where only one piece of fabric is used to make a star that is visible on both sides of the flag. On a stars and stripes, this is accomplished by making star-shaped cutouts in the blue material. A white star is then appliquéd over top of the star shaped hole. On the reverse side, the rough cut fabric is rolled over and hemmed so that the white star shows neatly through the hole. Single appliquéd stars are generally preferred by collectors, both due to their rarity and the interesting look that this type of sewing creates. SEE ALSO double-appliquéd stars andreverse-appliquéd stars.
