  • George Washington pulled out the pattern including 13 stripes and 13 six-pointed stars. Betsy requested a five-point star, but Washington said it would be too hard for a flag.
  • Great Job Betsy!
  • Betsy then pulled out a pair of scissors, took a small piece of fabric, and cut a beautiful five-point star. Washington and the two others agreed to the change and gave the patterns to Betsy.
