Prayer Flags #4 & #5

I am scheduled to do a demonstration with Paintstiks for our guild, Just short little tutorials for the ladies to be interested in a new process. Since I am creating Prayer Flags in between everything else, I thought I would make one with some yellow hand dyed fabric.

Collected garage sale items for the rubbings.. The copper piece is the top of a warming tray, and the flower came from the bottom of a cut glass dish. I had written words in the open yellow area, but had to go over them today with a larger permanent pen.

My cousin in Florida called and sent me 12 boxes of fabric, long story but will go into that some other time.. This is part of a beautiful piece of silk, another Prayer flag, and tried stitching the word love on it.. If I had been braver, I would have put it in blue.. You can see, I printed a font from the computer and traced it onto tissue paper, then sewed over that onto the fabric. It worked out fine.

  1. Reminds me of when we used to tie dye T-shirts. I still love those T-shirts today.
    These are very pretty Vivian.
