Pray Pockets

These are simple-sweet little bags/pockets that you create with a bit a bead embroidery and embellishing upon a piece of felted fiber. Before you seal it up with the edging put your payer or word inside.  You can carry it in your pocket, purse or make a necklace out of it.  Its a great reminder of your message inside.  Thoughts are things and manifestation works!

"Rags to Richness" taken to another level with lots of fringe that is picot edged and dripping with large hole pearls and Larimer.
