Recently there has been a bit of a theme to the bunting I have been producing. A bit of a geek theme. It all started with some weather front bunting. I’d been looking at the weather forecast, and it struck me that the fronts on the maps looked like bunting. It had then been at the back of my mind for a while, and it got to a point where I just HAD to make it! It’s made out of ripstop fabric, which makes it weather proof too! It can be seen in full over on Etsy.
It then progressed onto the geekiness of computers. Finding this keyboard fabric as a discontinued remnant made it even more alluring to make, knowing that this would be my only chance. Combined with circuit board fabric just compounds the geek factor! When my sons saw the bunting, they wanted it there and then, but I have denied them this for now, and put it for sale in the shop.
Finally I found this fantastic range of fabrics by Robert Kaufman. It immediately appealed to my inner geek, and again I just couldn’t let it sit in my stash for too long, before turning it into this bunting, which is already proving very popular.
I think I have got the geekiness out of my system for now, but if I find some more brilliant fabrics that appeal to that side of me, you can be assured that I will get creating with more geeky bunting.
