I finished my new Baby / Nursery Pattern Design collection of the ALSC art Challenge last week! I’m usually down to the wire trying to finish these art challenges so it’s refreshing that I am done before the deadline. This cute little bunny character showed up and I’ve named her — Beatrice Bunny! And I’ve added her Meadow Friends to include all of the other characters in the design like the… owl, mouse, kitten, sun and birds. I Love how all of the colors came together in the palette.
I took the time to create a mock-up of Beatrice Bunny so that she looks like a fabric bunny doll. With a little Photoshop magic I though it came out pretty cool. I may actually create a pattern and get some fabric and try to sew up a sample of her. Though it’s been a few years since I’ve had my sewing machine going. I always use to love to sew and so embroidery too. Just not enough hours in the day to do all the creative things you want.
I believe in Unicorns… do you? I illustrated this unicorn for a nursery room wall art print, but it never made it into my Etsy shop. I actually took everything out of my shop and am rethinking the whole shop thing. I may add some content that is downloadable art. Still thinking about it. I found shipping out the Esty prints to be an unproductive break in my day. So if I do prints again I’ve got to explore better production and shipping methods. Any suggestions? I am hoping that if I get some samples of my licensed products that I’ll sell this in my shop. Stay tuned!
Anyway… back to this Unicorn! These magical little creatures seem to be trending very strongly in any shape or style. Since I had started with a wall art print design, I decided that it would like kinda cool as a fabric pattern. So that’s what you see to the right of the Unicorn design. I also love how the creams and teal colors look on the brown fabric ground. Such a whimsical pattern that I’m going to add more colorways also.
