-Fabric (recommend something thicker)
First I picked out my state. I have a book of maps and I cut out my home state of Minnesota :). I know you also can print out a outline of states if you just google your state there are lots of size and options available. I had some white fabric and I traced the state onto my white fabric with a pencil and cut it out. I recommend using a thick fabric such as felt for the state due to when I made mine the glue shows through a bit.
I even did an USA one! Its my new obsession!
