This is what I enjoy most about making bunting to order.
You never know what the next customer is going to ask for!
This time it was to make a long length in the beautiful, rich colours of Africa.
I already had fabric with gazelles on and found some with a map of Africa (perfect!) but sadly the flag wasn’t big enough to accommodate the whole ‘country’! My customer had material from her bridesmaids ‘evening’ dresses so I was able to add a personal touch for her as well .
The sun also shone across the conservatory ‘playroom’ the day that these pictures were taken, giving a true flavour of the African plains in suburban Surrey!
And with the sun ‘turned down a bit’ the beautiful oranges, greens and gold can be seen and appreciated more clearly.
