This handmade, Celebration bunting is created by printing vintage pictures from the 1960's on to cotton. The cotton is then cut into pennants and backed with vintage linen, cotton or damask - depending on what is available. Each flag is sewn with a contrasting thread and finished with a decorative, cut edge. No two flags on the string are the same.
The bunting is 2 metres long and has 9 flags that measure 14cm x 9cm and are spaced about 9cm apart. The images were all found on Birthday or Good Luck cards and are very reminiscent of the era both in subject matter and colour.
This bunting is perfect for a celebration but would also look sweet in a child's room to brighten up a wall or alcove.
These prints are water-resistant but not waterproof. The strings can be used indoors or out but not on a rainy day!
