I decided to make a set of flags about the ideas of safety, nurturing, and security. Although they were intended for my garden I'm not certain I can bear putting them outside!
In the case of each piece I screened the same bird/nest image on the red silk
and directly under it onto the canvas.
I screen printed some sale tags and tied them onto the bottom of each piece.
Each flag was sewn onto a length of cotton trim.
Flags are a great way to "work small". They can be playful, fun, or contain a deeper meaning. The choice is up to you. I am making some additional pieces to hang in the garden. I hope the birds approve!
Here's a sneak peek at a few more....
