Details of swap:

Mini prayer flags - everything small is fun, right? You will make 3 mini prayer flags. The finished size should be at least 4" x 6" but no larger than 5" x 7". You will keep one flag and send the other two to your partner. Your partner will keep one and abandon one in the world.

The base can be fabric with any kind of embellishment - paint, buttons, paper, more fabric, ribbon, yarn, beads, photos, felt, and the list goes on. The same basic instructions for making flags apply* - add a rod pocket at the top so the flag can be hung from a twig or a dowel. You do NOT have to send the twig or dowel!

The three flags do not have to be copies - you can repeat colors, fabric, or embellishments to make a set but it is not necessary.

*If your finished flag is 4" by 6", you should start with fabric that measures 4" by 9" - the extra 3" makes the rod pocket.

Please post a comment in the discussion thread once a week or so - that way we can all keep in touch with each others' progress. Thank you.

NOTE: I am traveling October 31 - November 11. I am going to an art show in Amsterdam with stops in London and possibly Paris so I will not be able to much updating during those days, If this is a problem for you and your other swaps, maybe wait and I will host a second round in January.

The fun part - I could abandon the flag I receive in one of these cities!

Yeeeessss, I so need to be in on this. All my prayer flags have broken their string in the yard because of the weather we've had this last few days, nowhere near as bad as other places, but I think it's part of the same tropical storm.

I think some have even been attacked by evil slugs.  (I have a fear of slugs)

I will fill out my questionnaire tomorrow.

I am going to wait until the last minute to sign up to make sure some parcels I've sent get to their destinations OK first.

This sounds like fun -- hopefully I could use felt or some other easy to hand sew
fabric to make the flags?  Haven't used the machine in a long time, and it's boxed up   Roll Eyes

Fusible interfacing will stick fabric to other fabric, no stitching required at all. Brads, buttons, staples, rivets, so many ways to attach all the things. These lovely works of art are literally endless possibility.
