Pattern Description:

Prayer flags are like small textile collages that bring support, comfort and encouragement to someone who really needs it. It's a tangible way we can walk along side someone whose life is a bit challenging at the moment.
Carpe Diem (seize the day) is the theme of this set of five prayer flags. My niece Kora took inspiration and strength from these words during her cancer surgery and recovery. When she was ready, Kora passed the flags on to her mom to give her courage in her last days. Now they are supporting a young mom with tiny newborn twins. Begin your legacy of encouragement by creating your own set ... Carpe Diem!
