Welcome to the first week of my prayer flag series.
I am making prayer flags for a few reasons. One, because I love the way they look! I think they are really beautiful. Two, I am treating them all like little canvases, which gives me an opportunity to experiment with different techniques. Last, I want to be more intentional in my prayers.
Below is a picture of the first one I made. The theme this week is Gratitude. I think that all prayer should begin with gratefulness.
If you are playing along, please don't get too caught up in the instructions. Feel free to follow your artistic instinct. You don't have to create exactly what I'm doing. My instructions are just a guide and to act as a sort of inspiration.
Make sure you brush all the salt off, and then you will the grainy texture left behind!
If you don't have a free motion foot on your sewing machine, there are so many other options for the word gratitude. You could paint it on, use scrapbooking letter stickers, collage it with magazine cut-outs, etc.
