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

After I had sent it, I wished I had used different colors!  My partner said she still liked it though so it's okay Tongue

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks! I think it was the first time I used the Lazy Daisy stitch and worked out perfectly!  I really need to study my embroidery books and broaden my stitch horizons a bit. 

It was fun to make and I would love to try my hand at more of them.  I may have to participate in the next Prayer Flag swap that comes around.
