Today we spent the day with my good friend Rebecca, and her 5 children. She is an extremely busy lady who is the brains behind this website dedicated to larger families.
Rebecca has asked me if I could create a library bag for each of her children. They all have their own favourite colour (which are all different), which Rebecca has encouraged because it helps her keep track of their different belongings. So I am armed with that information, and some details about their favourite things.
I arrived home and started sketching (in the small amount of time before I had to produce dinner) and here is a page of butterflies.
I have been wanting to draw out some Butterflies for a while. Michaela will be moving from a cot into a bed soon, and I plan to put some on the Doona cover that I am going to make. I have a sheet with a Lavender coloured gingham print which I am going to . They also happen to be Brooke’s favourite thing (Rebecca’s youngest daughter).
So I have made a little start. More sketching will be needed before I start on drawing out an actual design, for either the doona or a library bag, but I like this page of angular butterflies. I am going to explore this look, I am having fun!
