According to Wikipedia, "A prayer flag is a colorful panel of rectangular cloth, often found strung along mountain ridges and peaks high in the Himalayas. They are used to bless the surrounding countryside and for other purposes." You can read more about it here.
We were to make three flags that measure 5 by 8 inches and they should include a word, a prayer, a wish or a hope associated with it.
Here is my first one!
For the next two I used parts of vintage handkerchiefs.
I took the colored crocheted lace from the edge of one handkerchief and the butterfly came off the corner of another one.
This next one used two handkerchiefs.
I actually made four flags so Lenna could have one as a thank you for hosting the swap.
Lenna, choose whichever you like!!
I wanted to use some of my vintage lace stash for one so I made a flag using several different pieces.
I started playing with the pieces and ended up creating something that looked like an article of clothing. The collar pieces came from that can I was telling you about. I got so much joy out of that $1 can!
