As part of our Ramadan crafts challenge today, we learned about the flag of Algeria and embroidered it’s central moon & star on a stitch blank of America.
Algeria ( Arabic: علم الجزائر, Amazigh languages: ⴰⵛⴻⵏⵢⴰⵍ ⵏ ⴷⵣⴰⵢⴻⵔ) is located in Africa. It is bordered to the northeast by Tunisia, to the east by Libya, to the southeast by Niger, to the southwest by Mali, Mauritania, and the Western Saharan territory, to the west by Morocco, and to the north by the Mediterranean Sea.
The national flag of Algeria is divided into two equal vertical sections, green and white, with a red crescent moon and star in the center. The The colors and emblems on the flag represent the religion of Islam, the nation’s prominent faith.
I received this stitch blank as my role as Plaid Ambassador. If you are unable to find one, create your own by drawing out an outline of America & adding stitch holes for the moon & star center.
My youngest teen made this tutorial today and she rates it easy. She started by painting the east coast of America white and the west coast, green.
Then she figured a moon outline out and used the red embroidery thread to sew it on.
Once the crescent moon was complete, she started on the star.
After both were finished, she tied off the thread & cut off any extra. Now our Algerian flag has been painted and stitched and ready to be placed in a frame, hung on a wall, or added to a book shelf.
