It's been over a year since the last Prayer Flag Swap, so it's time for another round! If you don't know about prayer flags, this article from Cloth Paper Scissors

How to Make Prayer Flags

1. Cut pieces of fabric to 5" x 11". Use materials you already have on hand.
2. Fold the top down on each piece of fabric and stitch in place to create a 3" sleeve, making the flag surface 5" x 8".
3. Paint, stitch, embroider, appliqu, or collage the flags.
4. Add words, journaling, or symbols as desired. You can appliqu letters, add hand stitching, stencil with textile paint, or just write with a permanent marker.
5. Thread the flags onto a string or cord and hang them outdoors so the breeze will catch them and spread your intentions.


To keep this an easy, low-stress swap, you can choose to send to either one or two partners. In addition, each of us is going to make an additional prayer flag for ourselves. So if you have one partner, you're going to make two flags and keep one, and if you have two partners, you're going to make three flags and keep one.

As usual, to sign up for this swap, complete this questionnaire and PM it to Wulf. But first, read this IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

- You must get delivery confirmation if sending within the U.S., or a mailing receipt if sending to or from elsewhere in the world.
- If you must send late, let the organizers and your partner know ASAP.
- Good communication is very important. If you haven't already posted in this thread, please do so as soon as you've signed up, and stay in touch by posting weekly in the swap thread.
- PM both organizer and your partner when you send and when you receive.
- Please post photos of the flags you receive and the flag you made for yourself in the gallery. Remember to take pictures of what you make before you send it, just in case.
- HAVE FUN!
