Prayer flag for October 15th Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day


Inspired by the beautiful baby-loss projects of Carly Marie, I posted a prayer flag to Australia on Tuesday. I was very proud of it and it felt very special sending it all that way to fly on a beach in Australia with flags from all around the world. Carly is going to photograph each flag she receives before flying them on the beach she goes to in memory of her son, Christian. 

This is my flag for Isla...





















The base cream fabric is the one I used for Isla's burial gown, the lace too. The heart is in the fabric I used for the dress I made and wore to her funeral. The bird houses come from the fabric I had chosen to make her nappy bag out of. And the bow is of the ribbon I tied her burial gown on with. A bit of freestyle embroidery and there we go!

I realise it looks like 'Islan' because of my swirly line but still! That's me, gotta make 1 cock-up per project!!
