I still had to go ahead and make it though as I have always loved the old fashioned English fairground scenes and Helta Skelta's are such a romantic symbolism of these. I remember every fair I went to as a kiddie had the obligatory Helta Skelta and it was always red and white striped!
So I created my design with red and white striped fabric (no brainer), some vintage trim for the slide, some sparkly fairground sequins and a ribbon for the flag. Every item is appliqued (besides the sequins which are hand sewn) and secured with machined zigzag stitch.
Are there any Aussies reading this who knew exactly what this was or is it just an unrecognisable pretty design?
