A Pocket Prayer
One of my young co-workers has been struggling with some heart problems recently and spending a lot of time in the hospital. I wanted to do a little something for her, so I gathered some fabrics and pieced together this little Pocket Prayer. The velvet heart was cut from my recent dye experiments. Many prayers for a strong and healthy heart were stitched into this while sitting in her hospital room keeping her company. Stitching was added around the heart and a simple rolled hem was created from the backing fabric to bind the piece. It's a tiny tactile piece, only 3" square, small enough to tuck into a pocket or purse, to remind her with each encounter, that many prayers are going out on her behalf.
