*Prayer Flag* - October- Breast Cancer Awareness Month

*A Flower for You*
a paper and fabric prayer flag
October is -Breast Cancer Awareness Month-  I have friends that are fighting this terrible disease so I decided to make them prayer flags with paper and fabric.
Some I made big and some I made small for easier fitting in a card and mailing.
After I put together pieces of paper cloth and fabric I decided to cut some letters out to form words of encouragement and for them to be part of the design. To accomplish this I took out my *Slice* machine and put it to work.

First I ironed on fusible web to the underside of a designer paper. Then I peeled the paper off and with its glue side down, I chose the letter size (in this case I chose 1 inch size) and started to cut.

After I've formed the word, I covered it with parchment paper and ironed it in place.
With the help of a sewing machine I then sewed all around to secure all the pieces in place. Afterwards, I then decided to embellish it.
I used 12w Aurifil thread for some details and...
...beading and paper flowers for other details.

I bought a supported stencil to paint on the backing fabric or on the envelop. All the proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research.
