To Boston With Love – tutorials and inspiration

It’s been so exciting to see the response to the To Boston With Love project!

The flickr group is getting full of fabulous flags, and individuals and guilds alike have been spreading the word via blog posts.

Please continue to spread the word, the more flags the merrier. If you’d like to blog about the project, or add this button to your blog, here’s the code for the button.

To Boston With Love

Were you thinking about making a flag, but weren’t sure where to start? Berene has kindly has put together patterns for two flags, her LOVE flag, the very first flag made, and a fabulous strippy heart.

LOVEflagdone
The LOVE tutorial/pattern can be downloaded HERE.

HSL.strippyheart
And the Strippy Heart tutorial/pattern can be downloaded HERE.
Please Note: You may post a link to these patterns on your website, but you may not post them as free downloads on your or any other website. Thank you.

And if you’re looking for even more inspiration, there are tons of tutorials out there to chose from! We’ve compiled a list below, but if you have any more suggestions, or you’ve made your own tutorial, let us know and we’ll add them in. Keep in mind that unlike Berene’s patterns, these tutorials aren’t specifically for the flags, so you might need to resize them.
