Scrappy positive affirmation flags

A friend and I got together to make scrappy fabric bead and I saw the below affirmation in her office so used our creations from that day to put this together for her:

The hanger is copper wire from the hardware store shaped and hammered to make it flat and strong.

Sometimes a positive affirmation is a bit sassy. I like that!

Made for my lovely partner in the most recent Positive Affirmation swap.

After teaching the scrappy bead class here, I had a bowl full of samples to use for more projects.

Figuring out one way to attach them to a Teesha Moore style scrappy square.

And a different style using the fold as a long channel for hanging up the flag.

The front got words and was sent off to another swap partner, it hasnโ€™t arrived yet so this is all Iโ€™ll show of it for now.


These are gorgeous!

Soooooo wonderful! They are such a wonderful mix of scrapiness (spellcheck suggests scrawniness, scratchiness, crispiness) and precision.

Ooh, spellcheck is a goof!

Thanks everybody :blush:. More of these are in the works for friends & also to abandon. Iโ€™m really liking the hammered wire hangers & trying a few fun shapes. Thatโ€™s so much easier than I imagined it to be & turns out pretty neat looking.
