I love prayer flags. The intention of prayer flags is to send good wishes out to the universe. I have a bunch of Thai prayer flags hanging on my back verandah, but I decided I wanted to have a go at making my own.
I used an old white sheet that I cut into rectangles. I hate to throw things away, so if I can find another use for something, I do it. In this case, a sheet that had worn so thin it had torn.
Using acrylic paint, I transformed my pieces of sheet, just painting randomly over the fabric. I chose to stick to a colourway on each one, but you could paint whatever combination you like.
Once I had a pile of coloured fabric, I was ready to cut them into flags.
With my flags cut, I was ready to sew them together. I had some wide lace that I bought from the op shop that was perfect to sew them together with.
Once the flags were sewn to the lace, they were ready to hang!
And happy prayers are sent out into the world!
