'Blue, purple, silver''

Do you find that the simplest of ideas sometimes turn out the hardest to achieve? 
This needed to be masculine - so I sewed on the very shiny silver scrap of ribbon at a 'rackish' angle, a bit like a man might wear a hat.
I wanted it to look solid and strong

The colour looks more maroon than purple in this photo!
It took an amazing amount of trial and error - but I really enjoyed it.

And to combine metal, with material.

Did I achieve my aim?

I hope so!

Great bunting piece Lottie, I love the combination of metal with material and the pewterish tone of the lace/ribbon looks fabulous!
