Prayer Pillows for F.A.T. Swap


These 3 tiny little pillows ( the largest 1 3/4 in square ) were made for the F.A.T. exchange. Inside each is a "prayer" for the receiver. The Dragonflies are charms and I used them because in some cultures the Dragonfly symbolizes new light and joy. Dragonflies are viewed as as a representation of positive forces, renewal and the power of life. The charms, along with the little personal prayer inside should cover a lot ;-)

Jackie, Your Prayer Pillows are wonderful. I LOVE Dragonflies and I enjoyed reading the meaning of them. I have given them for friendship but gosh... they mean so much more.
I sure would like to get one of yours in the trade. I posted pics of mine on my blog so take a peek if you have time,
((((hugs))))

I'd never heard of a prayer pillow before but what a great idea! And thank you for enlightening me/us about dragonflies. I've seen them used a lot but had never learned what they symbolized. Blogging is such a great tool!!!
