I can’t tell you how excited I am to introduce Badger Belle to you.
This is not only our first blog but also our first website.
Let’s start with a potted history…
It was way back in 2011 that we created our first string of bunting to celebrate the birth of the child of a dear friend. Giving something handmade and stitched with love seemed a fitting way to welcome the precious new arrival. It was crafted at a dining room table, after the children’s bedtime and with a cup of tea and slice of cake standing by.
Not much has changed!
The bunting is still sewn whenever the children are otherwise occupied and the kettle is always on. We’re also proud to say that that very first gift of bunting is still hanging on the wall of a now very lively and clever growing girl!
The warmth and gratitude with which this gift was received led to numerous other strings of baby bunting to be made each time to welcome a precious little bundle into the lives of our friends.
The bunting was hung up on walls, doors and shelves and we realized that people didn’t just like our bunting, they cherished it. As more gifts were given, commissions were booked and a business was born. I was delighted to watch my hobby evolve into a dream come true.
My children are fascinated by my work and frequently give their opinions, both on my fabric choices and why they absolutely needÂ more bunting for their bedrooms.
It’s safe to say that you may not find a house more adorned with bunting than ours!
Badger Belle has been a while in the making and I’ve been enthused at every step! It is now my sincere wish that you enjoy looking through this website and that the images and designs make you smile. If you have any questions on what we do please drop us a line on the Contact page as we’d love to hear from you.
I hope you drop in again soon for another chat!
