We were so inspired by these beautiful costume designs by Australian artist Will R. Barnes and were painted between 1919 and 1920.  Each watercolour illustrates a different flower. 

The garlands feature gorgeous watercolours digitally printed onto organic cotton  and cut into little flags. The edges are kept raw with a simple stay stitch.
