I know "The Postman" may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I have a soft spot for it. I've always liked the flag and thought it'd be a simple prop. I recently rediscovered an old flag I had and decided today I'm going to make this prop that I've always wanted... So many pics to come, as this will be a one day build, haha. Stay tuned!

Made some pretty good progress today. Didn't get to complete it, some things came up, but I did get the star cut out, as well as all the letters. Went to the fabric store and found a fabric very close in color, and even texture. Dyed it with a tiny bit of brown fabric dye which brought it a little closer to the original color. But even then, in the film, the additions to the flag stand out as newer... My goal is to sew it all together tomorrow.

Also scored these two beauties on ebay today... The jacket is accurate, the only different on the hat is where this one has a 3, the screen used hat has a guy riding a horse. The rest of the badge is accurate...

Well, I originally had thought about just grabbing the sewing machine and doing the letters... But then I thought, well they'd be hand sewn. So I started doing that, and I love how it looks, but christ this'll take me forever. Good thing there's no rush, haha.

Love the movie. Hold it dear to my heart since my dad has been a postman for close to thirty years, plus I love Costner. This is a wonderfully thought out prop. Great to see something old school on here for once.

It's coming along. Now with Comic Con out of the way, I can get back to sewing on those letters... I did however get my jacket and hat in! Oh the fun!! One day, it'll be a great costume to wear to a Con, and better believe I will carry the flag with me!
