I am hosting a 6x6 4th of July quiltie swap on the fabric in altered art yahoo group. Here is my entry. I used denim from a pair of jeans picked up at Goodwill, and stamped blue stars all over it. Put together the little safety pin embellishment and made the little beaded charm. The wire 'fireworks' is a brad and the ity bity flag is a polymer clay bead. I also made a very similar one for myself. Something I try to do for these swaps. It doesn't take much extra time and that way I have some of my own things to keep.
