This bunting is comprised of dainty coordinating cutwork handkerchiefs and napkins in crisp white. They're all different, and lend lots of visual interest, but similar enough to flow well together. I machine embroidered three of the words in a khaki with rosy undertones; 'soul' is in a warm red-orange. The banner is strung together on some thin khaki twill tape and finished with wide paisley (brown and vibrant multi) grosgrain ribbon ties/streamers. This garland measures approximately 41" from end to end not counting the ribbon ties, which are about 35" on each side.

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!
