Video Tutorial: Crochet Blue Star Service Flag Tapestry

This is the same technique that I used to create the Barack Obama crochet piece. The Blue Star Service Flag was a fun project for me to make. It worked up very quick, with no mistakes. I have made two flags so far. The idea came from my dad as I was talking to him on the phone one Sunday, a few weeks ago. Many of you know that I am a former military spouse. My children are now serving our country with the United States Military. Crochet is something that provided comfort for me, throughout the years of many deployments.

The video tutorial is showing how to create a crochet project from a chart. I am including a smiley face for those of you that would like to practice on a different project than the flag. I included a beige background with the smiley. It will be very easy for you to substitute another color in place of the beige.
