A New Listing! Holly Hobbie Vintage & Floral Flag Bunting

Being a child of the 1970's, I always had a love of Holly Hobbie.
Actually so did my grandmother, I remember (and now have) her 1976 Holly Hobbie Calendar and a few other 'trinkets', I think I'll be making some cards out of this calendar some time soon - or maybe later in the year ;)


My new style of bunting is a 'Holly Hobbie & vintage floral'.
I think I have came up with some thing so unique, you will not find a bunting quite like this anywhere in the world!
This cute fabric is 'hard to find' (made in the 1970's), I have purchased this preloved Holly Hobbie material from the USA - expensive to buy & to post, but its worthwhile, it's just so sweet!

More info on this item:

THIS ITEM: This Holly Hobbie Flag Bunting adds charm to any room, or outside area !!!

Total length is 3.3 meters / 330 centimeters / about 11 feet approx.
Eleven (11) flags in various fabrics.
There are six Holly Hobbie Flags! Three vintage floral flags & two Applique/sewn lace flags.
This set of flags are made from original preloved/used, vintage fabrics & doily lace.
The bunting flags are larger than my usual bunting flag size.

Single sided - can be viewed from front only. Holly Hobbie fabric is only on one side.
There are no unfinished edges on these flags.

Please Note: This item is ready to be posted, this may NOT be the actual bunting you will get but you WILL get the this style of bunting with the SAME fabrics :)
