It’s The BIG DAY this Saturday and everyone can join in with the celebrations. Here at Spunart we’re putting the flags out with some eye-catching bunting made from Evolon. As Evolon is white, we only had to colour the blue and red triangles, before sewing them on to a string of blue ribbon. As Evolon does not fray, the individual pieces keep their neat and tidy appearance, with no loose threads to worry about or spoil the effect. We hope Harry and Meghan enjoy their wedding day and wish them every future happiness.
Whether you are new to Evolon or a regular user, here are a few facts about this amazing fabric that you may not know . . . A few insights into the manufacturing process . . . Evolon is a produced using a unique, worldwide patented manufacturing process. It’s production consists of only three components – polyester, polyamide and water. Polyester and polyamide chips are spun into endless filaments, which are then uniformly laid on a belt. The filaments are then simultaneously split into microfilaments (up to 100 times thinner than a human hair!) and entangled together with high pressure water jets, creating a fabric. No chemical […]
Why not add a touch of atmosphere to your Halloween celebrations this year with these pumpkins made out of Lutradur and Evolon? We used a set of battery operated fairy lights to illuminate our display (£2.50 from Wilkinsons including batteries) and we hope you like the effect as much as we do. Just imagine how attractive they would look softly glowing in a hall window on a dark and spooky October evening . . . To make the pumpkins we coloured some Lutradur 70gms with orange transfer paint and then drew a circle for each pumpkin using a compass. Keeping the compass […]
‘Home is where the Heart is’ – Draught Excluder Love maybe in the air this February . . . but no-one likes a draught! The recent windy weather (and the cool breeze around my feet!) prompted me to make this colourful draught excluder using a remnant of blue cloth. The letters and hearts are cut from a piece of Evolon, and then coloured using transfer paints. Evolon is ideal for this sort of decoration as it does not tear or fray, which makes it really quick and easy to work with. To make the lettering, simply print the words from your computer. (I […]
How to Make Snowmen using Evolon These little snowmen are fun, inexpensive and simple to make and can be illuminated with LED tea lights for an extra touch of Christmas magic. Easy enough for the kids to make, as there is no sewing involved, and can be decorated and painted in all sorts of ways. Evolon is ideal for this project as it is a white flexible fabric, yet strong enough to support itself and has the added bonus of allowing light to pass through (if you want to place them over an LED tea light). Here’s what you will […]
