This is it. The final platypus fabric design for my little girl who simply adores platypuses!
See this little platypus drawing above? I have at least 50 of these drawings from my daughter. She always draws them the same way. To her credit, that is what her beat up stuffed-animal Plat looks like. Well, I got to thinking…what if I took that shape and matched it with its complete opposite? It would look like a yin-yang symbol. That could be fun for a little girl’s bedroom décor…so I tried it. The kid-platypus shape definitely lends itself to a yin-yang shape!
This is what it looks like pieced together:
I took some of the patterns and shapes from the “Tropical Platypus” fabric in hopes of tying the two together.
Actually all three fabrics loosely match:
Next, I am going to flatten the paintings under a very heavy book for the next couple of days. Then I will attempt to get a perfect photograph of each of the three prints. Don’t look too closely, but they don’t match up perfectly. It’s not the art, it’s the photography. I need to set up my tri-pod. It will take a bit of finagling on my part.
So that completes my fabric design attempts. Now that the creative part is complete…you can wish me luck on the technical!
As I have mentioned for the last couple days, I will load them on www.spoonflower.com and get some custom fabrics printed. I am so excited to add such a personal touch to my daughter’s room.
Thanks for joining me!
