Since my book I've somehow got carried away and just make stuff without documenting it- which is actually really nice, as it's more free flowing, however
Reloved magazine recently approached me asking if I'd be interested in project designing for them- where each month I come up with a design based on their chosen theme- this has prompted me to start taking more photos and writing about what I do again.
It's also got my brain ticking and I've been having big brainstorms with new projects and trying to push my ideas.
The theme for July was 'beach',not a difficult brief when a lot of my inspiration comes from Caribbean colour.
Reloved mag like ideas which can be quick, simple, which none can do.
So I thought of a simple garland, and because of my love for wood and 3D design (I often find traditional fabric bunting a bit twee) thought using scrap wood was a nice idea.
The following is a guide of how to make 'beach hut bunting' which will brighten up any room, to be displayed on a wall of hung above a doorway.
Scrap wood (thick card can be used but won't last as long) ban saw, modge podge or PVA glue, scissors, imagery (photo copy print outs of pattern from books/magazines/wallpaper), string,hooks.
