Ric Rac Flag Shirt, YouTube Thursday - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Welcome back to YouTube Thursday where we celebrate all things crafty with an awesome video tutorial perfect for any crafting level. Today we aren’t only celebrating crafty things but our American flag as well on an adorable little shirt with ric rac and a sweet little bow! This Ric Rac Flag Shirt is ready to help you celebrate the 4th of July and all of the parties and fun you and your family are going to enjoy this year! Not only is this shirt beyond cute, it is so very easy…in fact, so easy you will be able to sew one for all of your 4th of July lovin’ family members. Even your boys would rock with shirt…maybe not with a sweet little bow, but you could easily turn this girly girl shirt into an awesome, super sweet shirt your fellas would be proud to wear too!

Let’s get started!


Red Ric Rac (any size, I used 1/2″)
Dark Blue Ribbon (I used the stars in 7/8″)
Hem Tape (Stitch Witchery)

Red Ric Rac
Blue Stars
Patriotic Ribbon and Trim
I love Ric Rac…and this shirt is covered in it and just too cute for words! Enjoy!

Cute right?!? I can’t wait to make this adorable flag shirt for my little patriotic missy! She will love wearing this fun shirt to all of our 4th of July festivities! I absolute love the 4th of July! I love everything about it from the red, white and blue colors everywhere to the tear that always wells up in my eyes whenever I have the opportunity to put my hand over my heart in gratitude for what our American flag means to me and our amazing nation! What about you? What is your favorite part about the 4th of July?

    Oh, how I loooove this shirt–using ric rac instead of ribbon adds such an adorable touch, as does the whimsical blue with stars bow!! ::squeals::

    Still no speakers (grrrr), so would you mind telling me how long are the two lengths of red ric rac?

    Like you, Michelle, I looooove the 4th of July!… the red, white, and blue colors that we see everywhere; the small-town parades; the patriotic music–especially when performed by the Boston Pops; !!!fireworks!!!; and especially the sense of pride in our country that seems to be heightened between Memorial Day and the 4th. Everyone responds so pleasantly when you wish them a Happy 4th or smile at their red, white, and blue clothing (and accessories – hehehe!)! xoxo

      Hi Pat! I am so glad you love this awesome and super festive shirt! The length of ric rac used is not specified. She just says to eye the length that you like to get your desired size of flag. I hope this helps! Thank you for your question and your fun comment Pat! Have a great day! Michelle 🙂
