This prayer flag was created for @seeuudee in the recent Prayer Flag Swap. The lovely seeuudee enjoys all things steampunk, and one of her themes was Journey. Since it was made during the early days of pandemic, when we all first hunkered down, everything physical is from stash.
I’m pretty sure the fabric is hand dyed, and came from a swap on Deadster. The gears are jewelry charms I painted white and distressed with a reliefing block. The lace is from a ren faire costume made a lifetime ago. The embroidery designs are digital downloads from Urban Threads. I loved using this project as an excuse to play with my new-to-me embroidery machine. The embroidery thread even came with the machine.
And finally the beads are Swarovski crystal from promotional packs Fire Mountain Gems sent me. They are too tiny or not the right shape for the type of jewelry I usually make, so they’ve been in my stash waiting for a special project. I like how the clear AB heart picks up on the pink, blue and purple in the flag.
Special thanks to @Abbeeroad, @sheepBlue, @PerfectlyBohemian & @StudioANF, who all helped with advice and encouragement over an online crafting session together.
