She loves birds and one of the words she chose was "create". As soon as I read her questionnaire, this image of two birds building a nest popped into my mind, so it came together very quickly. Since we both love bright, bold color, it was easy and fun for me to make this for her.
I printed the word "create" onto fabric using my computer printer. If I could change one thing about this flag, it would be to add some hand stitching around the letters--I feel that they look too flat compared to the rest of the prayer flag.
The nest is composed of torn strips of fabric that I sewed end-to-end, then wrapped around my hand into a nice little bundle that I glued to the background. I didn't want to flatten it out with stitching, so fabric glue seemed to be the best option. Everything else is machine stitched in place, and all the fabric edges were left raw (I think it's more "artsy" that way!) The size is 8" tall and 5" wide, and there is a hanging sleeve on the back.
