Another FAT Swap


Three beaded blessings/prayer pillows....for my fiber art traders group.
The link to the site doesn't appear to be working but this is the definition given on the FAT group.

Definition:

A Beaded Blessing/Prayer Pillow, is a pouch or
envelope made out of material of choice, size
(recommend 1.5 x 1.5 -2 x 2), and color. Each one
contains a written wish, a hope, a dream, or a prayer
inside. The pouch is sewn shut to be honored and
remained closed.

Materials:

Silk, leather, Cotton, Printed Fabric, Weaved Fibers

Embellishments:

Artist's choice and techniques; fabric painting,
dying, art stamping, quilting, photo transfer,
crocheting, the ideas are endless. Found objects,
charms, personal mementos you want to be with your
intention, even polymer clay art pieces.
