Season bunting

As it is Easter Sunday (just about) I guess this is a good time to introduce the seasonal bunting that I create.  These are usually created as mini buntings, but can be created as larger 2.5m buntings too.  I currently have all seasons catered for, although some designs may change over time, according to fabrics and inspiration.  Inspiration comes through a combination of the natural world, and the fabrics I find.

Spring has seen two different buntings.  The original was this 2.5m bunting, but once it sold I had to create an alternative, as I couldn’t get the fabric anymore.005So I then came up with this mini bunting, which currently for sale here.  Which features a bluebell, a birds nest, a daffodil, and tree in blossom.

Moving onto summer there is a lovely 2.5m bunting, which would be beautiful for a garden party, or even just to brighten up a house.  It features a butterfly, some flowers on a vine, a stylised sun, and a tree in fruit.  It is a one off bunting, and is available for purchase here.

Autumn brings some beautiful warm tones, with hand dyed fabric, and a pumpkin, mushrooms, a hedgehog, and tree losing it’s leaves.  This is a mini bunting, which would look lovely hanging over a mantle piece as the nights draw in, and can be ordered here.016Finally, Winter.  I created a “snow” bunting, with beautiful ice blue fabric, and cute little snowmen on the end flags.

Whilst the original is still for sale, it has inspired a commission for a bunting spelling out “let it snow”

I am always open to commissions or suggestions for a seasonal bunting, if you have an idea you would like me to create, please contact me.

002I seem to spend most of my time making nautical bunting.  Following the maritime signal flags I create patchwork flags to create a personalised bunting, spelling out whatever the customer wants.  Since making the first one around this time last year, I have made 33 nautical buntings, ranging from 4  18cm square flags through to the complete alphabet in large 30cm square flags. This was the largest bunting I have made to date, measuring over 13m in length.  It was hard to get a photo of it, but you can just about get a sense of it in this photo.

The wonderful thing about taking on custom orders, is that you get to make things that you would never thought of making.  Such as switching colours on the nautical flags to co-ordinate with a room, hence this banner I made for a child’s nursery.

I have had to make some changes to the original design, such as changing the rope colour, as the original red colour, could not be sourced any more, and once I had used the 50m of it up, I had to find an alternative.  So now they are made with a hemp rope in natural colour.

This seems to be a very versatile bunting, being used in a wide variety of places, from boat clubs and boats, to babies nurseries, from weddings to housewarming gifts.  The one that has made me smile the most though, was the request for a bunting spelling out nerds.  I had visions of all these people trying to work out what it said, and then laughing when they realised!

Your own nautical bunting can be ordered here.

Thank you to my wonderful technical support (aka as my husband) I can now show you all the wonderful buntings I have been busy making over the 6 months I have been not updating the site.  So prepare to be bombarded over the next few days with plenty of buntings, along with some knitting and crochet, and even some embroidery.

The most recent bunting was 6m of rainbow bunting. I was pleased to be able to use this as an excuse to update my pictures of this, as my photography skills have improved since the first rainbow bunting I made, back in the early days.  I still have plenty of material  left, for more orders should anyone want any, and can provide lengths from 1.5m through to 6m or beyond if so required, it can be ordered here.
