To begin sewing your flags together, first pull a length of both the upper and bobbin threads through your sewing machine so you have a nice long “tail” to play with later.
NB: Not shown here but using different coloured thread in your bobbin will give you a lovely "bakers twine" effect with your thread.
Once you’ve done that, carefully feed in your first triangle and sew across the top. Here comes the part that might take a little practice.
What you’re aiming for is a small, even gap between each little flag. To achieve this you need to just let your needle sew into nothing for about 6 stitches between each flag.
Don’t pull your threads with any force as you’re sewing into the void or you’ll force through too much thread and end up with a gap that’s too long between each flagette. Having said that, it sometimes helps to exert just the slightest pull on the long threads at the back to keep everything moving forward. You might want to practise this on some scraps until you get the hang of how your machine behaves.
After 6 or so stitches into nothing stop with the needle down and then line up the next flag against your needle. Once it’s positioned, sew across the top and repeat the process until you’ve sewn all the flagettes into place.
