Say A Little....

Prayer....I'm taking part in a prayer flag swap, the deadline is the end of July.....where did the month go? I thought I had ages and consequently these were done in a bit of a panic...

edges torn... threads left hanging....no neat seams... all a bit traumatic for a neat freak but needs must. I hope the recipients like them...


They're made from a vintage linen pillowcase, dyed with Transfer dyes, stamped with Stazon,coloured with a red Promarker, bits of fabric and dyed lace and finished with a little hand stitching.

They certainly don't look rushed. I love them, hanging threads and all - and I'm sure the recipients will too.

These look lovely Effie and not rushed but rustic. What an unusual swap too.

The are FANTASTIC - perfect - just the sort of thing that I adore. They are bright and make one feel really happy just looking at it.

What a fabulous take on the theme. I always think of the Monks who put up prayer flags on the montains and deciples and worshipers leave their messages for the sky god.

I love these.They're all gorgeous and if there are any threads hanging and seams rushed,it isn't obvious and just adds to the rustic feel!
