The Prayer Flag Project

I have been a contributor to The Prayer Flag Project since October last year. This week I posted a couple of Creative Courage flags, which I want to share with you here.

I began with some pieces of  hand dyed fabric and cut them to size. These are 16 x 5 inches.

These will be folded over to make a pocket from which to hang them. I like to make mine double so that the back covers up any unsightly stitching.

Next I decorate the fabric with stencilling and stamping.

I added some birds and stitched in my theme.

The Prayer Flag Project is open to any one. It is about sending out wishes, giving thanks, commemorating a  friend, a loved one, or an event. It is about giving support to those near and far.

It is also about celebrating ones creativity in a positive way. The flags can be a simple or as elaborate
as you would care to make them.
Why not join in?
There are more details on the blog or you can email me your photos for inclusion.
You can also find more of my prayer flags here.
Wishing you all some Creative Courage this weekend!
