I love the saying and the dots of your flag, witchhippie! The bells just go together so nicely with the theme as well!

abbeeroad--just gorgeous...love the cut out and the sentiment...beautiful...

silentblair--such a meaninful and hopeful flag...you did a nice job of incorporating the popular symbol for hope

I feel so good all day when I come visit this gallery...

Thanks for the love for Sharalee's "believe" flag!

I used a new fabric marker technique for the pink ribbon.
It's supposed to look like watercolor painting.
You draw a bit on the outside edges and take a flat angled brush, dip it in regular water, then draw the color toward the middle.

So much fun, can't wait to try it more.

All of these flags are FANTASTIC! I have so much admiration for the talent here!

Me too! And thanks for the marker-painting tip, Blair. It sounds to easy to work, but it obviously does.

I got my second flag today! Cheesy Melissaurus has absolutely nailed my personal taste on this:

It's mostly paper, machine-sewn onto fabric, with hand-embroidered lettering. The sepia brown and lace (especially the lace lappets on the sides - longer than my scanner can capture) give it a wonderfully Victorian feel which is perfectly suited to the John Muir quote.

Thanks so much for this, Melissa! I only hope you like my flag half as much as I love this!

So many great new flags have arrived in such a short time!

Abbeeroad--the silhouette of the couple on your flag, along with all the details, is beautiful and imaginitive.  Love it!

Silentblair--that's a great "Believe" flag, and I loved the pink ribbon even before you told how it was made--now I love it more!

Witchhippie--your flag is beautiful; I especially love the bells (I see no incense!)

Melissaurus--wow!  Combining paper with the fabric and lace is such a great idea, and it looks amazing!

I was gone for a few days and came back to a lot of very gorgeous flags.

I love how the abstract design on the pathways quilt looks almost like a stone pathway.

The silhouette of a couple with text on the flag made by abbeeroad is so beautiful, and a very neat way to combine themes.

I love the ribbon on the believe flag it looks so 3-D.  I may have to play with this marker technique in the future.

The fabric on the flag made by witchhippie is an awesome combination.

I also love the flag made by melissaurus, I would have never guessed it was paper though.  I also love how the background is lace, it gives the flag a very delicate look.

I'm panicking. My flag turned into something totally unexpected. Now... what I had planned to do... just makes me totally distraught to do now. lol. I'm almost finished.
