In the recent prayer flag swap, we were asked to make flags for ourselves. I often make extras when I'm swapping, good for last minute gifts, donations to craft fairs, etc.

I chose curiosity. We need curiosity, interest in new things, the need to know, to know how. So take a look. It's approx. 8" x 5".

Lovely, vibrant flag; I dig the mismatched shapes/colors and the button additions are fun accents too!

All of the funky, bright colors are perfect and adding the buttons was a great idea. What a cool flag!
