Peace Process

Here's what I accomplished on Saturday. I'm continuing to sew up (by hand) the Peace Flags today.
Hope to do some printing tonight.

I decided to go with this typeface for Peace. I think the italic does a nice job of complementing the curves in the hamsa.

I added a period after the word, Peace. Not totally sure why and I may still remove it. I guess it seems more I really mean it.

Tracing the design.
Transferring the design.
Carving the design.

What do you think...period or not?

I picked a bright palette.

Ironed with hems pinned and ready to sew.
Here are the ones I've completed sewing so far. I have enough to make two sets, though I might only sew one up for now. Notice that I am sewing up two of the blue...if you've been following the Searching for Roy G Biv Challenge, you can guess that a Peace Flag will be the blue challenge fabric this month (September 20).


  1. It's great to see the process and it looks so promising! Lots of work too but it's well worth it. You'll make a beautiful collection of flags!

    1. Thanks, Ersi.
      Spent this morning printing flags. Going back in to do details later. I'll be posting sometime today. I'm really happy with how things are turning out. Hope your flag is moving forward. Looking forward to seeing what you and your group puts together.
