Flag DIY, DDC style...

i've recently became a huge fan of Aaron James Draplin and the Draplin Design Co. Also, i had this really cool looking Sea Foam flag that needed a project. Had some extra  Gold material form my Invaders projects. So i thought i'd add them all together and try something new... a DIY flag!

i took the main DDC logo from the "Freight Train Torso Cover"

copy, pasted, traced, scaled, and printed in AutoCAD, as i do almost always:

 cut out some temporary templates good for about 2-3 good traces:

sewed:

look how much thread i had left... couldn't sew another straight-away! SO close:

finished:

check out the scale... do those colors look sharp, or what?!?!

Aaron & the DDC gang, hope you enjoy the flag!
