New Item: Nautical Signal Flag Letters
« on: January 03, 2014, 01:29:56 PM »
Just listed yesterday: signal flag code for letters or monograms encased in marine canvas for key rings,luggage tags,secret identities.  I have been doing monograms in signal flags for years,mostly needlepoint but also cross stitch,piecing and maybe painting. These little fobs are disguised identities as only someone who knows the code can read them.
I now live in a maritime town, a port for all kinds of ships. There is a lot of nautical symbolism and materials around, especially a marine canvas shop just down the street, He uses an industrial machine but I can use my machine with a heavy duty needle. Needlepoint is done by hand ofcourse.
Fun.
