What better way to decorate your entertaining space than with this beautiful Everlasting Embroidered Bunting (with added tassels!)
This bunting is probably one of the most versatile decorations you will ever make. It is destined to become a true heirloom piece and relatives for years to come will be saying ..." Ooh I wonder what (great, great-great, great-great-great ) grannys bunting is going to say this year...!"
1. It’s double sided; beautifully embroidered on one side with your choice of letters or motifs and then fabric coated on the other. This not only makes the bunting stiffer (It won’t twist up in the wind) but also means it’s reversible.
2. Thanks to the way the bunting is strung it is super easy to change the order of the flags for any celebration. If you are celebrating Alices birthday one week and Celias the next, then no need to make two sets of bunting, just switch up the design between slices of cake! Any flags with letters on you are not using, simply turn them around and show off the fabric side.
Each bunting flag is 13cm by 10cm wide, not too big so each flag takes ages to stitch but not too small so they still make a real impact at any celebration.
While we may be in Jubilee Street Party fever here in the UK at the moment, this download has enough motifs and designs to help you make bunting for all kinds of occasions, wherever you are in the world. There are good luck charms, birthday cakes and true love birds plus circus style letters to spell the universal congratulation of HOORAY.
NOTE: For those of you wanting to create more slogan bunting and banners, I have designed the full circus alphabet, some punctuation and numbers 0-9, and am selling this as a separate download here.
