VPC2017: Baroness Agnes' Banner

This entry is Baroness Agnes' second, a painted banner submitted for the category Show Us Your Arms

She says:

The plan was quite simple: paint the Hous Amberhearthe badge on to one of those big white pieces of fabric I got from Kutwells. The execution was complicated by the intervention of the feline, eventually requiring the white of the ermine border to be painted in due to green pawprints. However, I am pleased with the final effect. In the end the whole banner had about 7 coats of paint!
The white was trimmed down, a backing of heavy linen tacked on, sewn, inverted, pressed and hand finished. Pole inserted and braided cord attached.
