The Cross in the Labyrinth Prayer Shawl is a portable labyrinth that wraps the user in a loving embrace. Labyrinths have been used for hundreds of years. They are used to celebrate life, find focus, connect to our spiritual center, and provide peace and comfort. Medieval Christians and pilgrims in Europe used the labyrinth to replace the longer journey to Jerusalem and the Holy Land. They have long been used as a tool for meditation and prayer. In the labyrinth there are no divides or dead ends allowing the mind to be released, resting the linear problem solving mind allowing us to be open to spiritual and creative experiences. The prayer shawl allows those who are unable to walk a labyrinth to experience the peace and comfort that walking a labyrinth brings.
The Cross in the Labyrinth Prayer Shawl Kit comes with pre-cut cotton fabric and the instructions for sewing the prayer shawl with no panels, 4" x 4" panel in the center of the cross, and 4" x 4", 4" x 6", 4" x 8", or 4" x 10" panels on the paths. It includes all the pieces needed including extra "oops" pieces. You can choose from two sets of Bible verse panels, just let me know at check out which set of panels you want or you can provide your own panels.
I would rate the skill level needed for the prayer shawl as moderate because it is sewn using a chart rather than blocks. This finished size is approximately 20" x 72" unless you are using 4" x 10" panels then the finished size is approximately 20" x 76".
