Patriotic Pinwheel Tutorial

I made some patriotic pinwheels and "planted" them in an antique (gas/oil?) can that my friend's daughter, Ava, found at a yard sale.  I will give you a step by step tutorial on how to make fabric pinwheels.  Here goes:

Follow the directions on the back and bond your two fabrics together with right sides facing out.
Cut the amount of heat bond you need and iron it on one fabric /paper side up/ carefully pull off the paper/ put the other fabric wrong sides together and heat with iron until bonded.
I found some sticks of varying lengths in the back yard and nailed the pinwheels into them so that I could arrange them in a container.
I hope this tutorial was helpful.  Please share your pinwheels when you make them.  Enjoy your day.
