I love bunting!! It’s not very common in Norway, but I use it as much as I can. However, some seasonal variations are appropriate… and I just realized I don’t really have a garland for summer… so of course I set out to make one 😀
The small garland is printed on one sheet of photo paper, choosing Page Scaling: Multiple Pages Per Sheet: Custom: 2 x5:
Here’s the preview, click on it to download the high quality PDF, of course with the correct amount of M’s…lol There are two different M’s and two different E’s in my garland, if you wish, you can choose to use only one of each. Or print just the first 6 flags for a shorter garland making up the word SUMMER:
For the medium garland I printed 2 flags per sheet, and crocheted the strings and edging. Let me know if anyone is interested in the details about how I did this, and I will make a tutorial and upload for you 😉 I only had the pale blue cotton yarn used in the pictures available, and I was too impatient to wait for the store to open on Monday. (Edit on Monday: I’m now working on a large 6-flag garland, using shiny apricot cotton yarn, it makes the garland even more smashing!)
I used letters from two different French 1882 Typography sheets, vectorized them and made pngs. Here are the PNG files (transparent background) with my summer colors and my fave damask texture (I use it for e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g atm), for you to share in the fun:
And I also posted the png-files with original colors, for you 🙂
These files are free for your personal use and enjoyment.
I used the following elements for this design:
