Creating perfect polka dots...
Polka dots are adorable, aren’t they? I think they're one of the cutest things ever made. However, creating the perfect polka dot pattern from scratch is a lot harder than it looks. It took me hours (and several re-starts over a period of time) to get the dots placed just right ~ I wanted that sort of ordered randomness, where the dots create a non-pattern pattern that goes on indefinitely, if that makes any sense. I thought it would be fairly simple to do ~ it’s dots on a piece of fabric, right? ~ but it was actually quite a
One other note ~ the teal polka dot pattern in the fabric picture above looks a little more blue than it actually is. If I hold up the fabric sample to the computer screen, it’s much closer to the teal box below. For some reason, though, my camera does not like that color. I have another fabric pattern in a similar color, maybe a little more turquoise, and the camera always wants to turn it blue. I've shot it a few times in different types of light, but so far I haven’t gotten it quite right.
All five of these polka dot fabrics ~ hot pink, lavender, teal, pink and mint ~ are available through Spoonflower. I’d love to know which color you like best.
Wishing all of you a bright and cheery weekend...
