I made this for my partner in the Magic Yarn Ball Swap. It was the first prayer flag I have made and since there is more embroidery on it than there was sewing done I am posting it here.... I found a pattern for a lotus blossom online and used that for the embroidered part. Then I blanket stitched the flower to the main fabric. My partner requested something that would hold up to outdoor weather so I used plastic letter beads for the word Namaste. Then I sewed the flag up and viola!
Here is a close up of the embroidery
