This crisp white flag bunting is made of vintage linens featuring cutwork and embroidered flowers. It’s highlighted with a deep turquoise satin ribbon (you can use these as ties or just drape them) and I’ve machine embroidered the phrase ‘very splendid things happen here’ in peacock. It’s 47½" wide excluding ribbon ties, which are approximately 17".
Recently I found myself possessed of some time to kill and no studio to kill it in, so I had to find a new way to Make and new materials to Make with. In accordance with my enthusiasm for pre-loved things that can’t be recovered when they’re gone, I started buying up vintage linens. I didn’t know what I’d do with them; I knew when it came time to sit down with them they’d present ideas to me.
Partly inspired by a sister who was planning a wedding, I started thinking about ways to use and display these beautiful pieces and this was the result: Statement banners and dresser scarves featuring snippets of prose, poetry and lyric.
Please keep in mind that these are vintage linens and as such may have some small flaws or marking that I couldn’t get out in the cleaning process. I will note those I observe in the listing, but please enlarge the pictures and scope things out for yourself so you know exactly what you’re receiving. Thanks so much!
