Butterflies and Blues

I am in the middle of making some gorgeous bunting for a bride getting married soon in New Zealand, and just had to show you the colours. This is about half of the mixture of lilacs and blues that she has asked for, with a floral and butterfly theme. It is going to look wonderful!

Plus we are adding to our Nautical Mini Buntings, with a couple of boat-themed buntings for all you jolly sailors (and they would look great too for a beach house!)

Gingham Rose Buntings

I haven't put any of our cute gingham mini-buntings on the website yet, but they look so sweet I wanted you to see them. These are made from Laura Ashley fabrics and look wonderful in the nursery, or for parties, christenings and other occasions.

Gorgeous Fabric Hearts

We are going even more green here at Zigzag, making sure we use every last bit of our lovely cotton fabrics.

Our latest idea is to make these gorgeous padded hearts, which can be used as wedding favours or door hangers for pretty bedrooms. Aren't they cute? We have filled them with pure cotton wadding from another local business here in the Test Valley, and have raided Grandma's button box for some charming buttons.

The hearts can be spritzed with your favourite scent, and we plan to make some more filled with lavender. What a lovely gift idea!

Union Jack Bunting

I have just finished an order for lots of lovely double-sided cotton bunting in our Union Jack fabric, destined for the Royal Exchange Theatre's Christmas production. This has all been antiqued to give a 1950's feel and really came out a treat !

This was our first time making the bunting flags rectangular rather than triangular, and left us with lots of smaller offcuts of fabric, so now I am going to design some new mini-bunting in this style: watch this space.
