Many moons ago I spotted a crumpled up length of vintage bunting at a car boot sale. It has different flags, representing some of the home countries. I gave it a wash and put it aside waiting for the inspiration to take over. To be honest I totally forgot about it until I was making some felt brooches for a fun day and decided to see whether it would work in fabric. I then remembered the bunting and thought with the forthcoming Olympics and Diamond Jubilee the bunting would be perfect.
I am really pleased with how it came out! I cut layers of folded fabric and stitched them together. I then plaited the leftovers and created a button to go in the centre. I love the muted the colours and ragged look to it.
I have it listed in my folksy and Etsy stores. I hope someone loves it as much as I do.
My shops and website are so bare at the moment that I really need to put in the hours to get it looking its best. I've given them a tidy and added better images to make it look a bit nicer.
