First off - Thank You! for the wonderful feedback on my little drawstring bags, including a lovely comment from talented Ayumi who's pattern it is! I hope that lots of you have a drawstring bag on your 'to do' list now, they are so easy and fun. Thanks too for the lovely comments about my fabric designs. I'm touched.
I've been promising a further design for this Toy Box series for a while now and finally its ready to show.
The majority of smallish boys I know are obsessed with building bricks like Lego. So when I was designing my Toy Box Prints, they were natural inspiration. I'm not sure a toy box exists anywhere without a few Lego bricks floating at the bottom, or more likely carefully boxed and labelled or made up into large and complex builds!
This pattern is destined to be turned into a duvet cover for a friend of mine who's son is mad about Lego and due for a new slightly more grown up cover. I like the way the pattern is sort of abstract, not too literal and the colour scheme goes with anything. Which background colour do you like? I'm thinking its the bright blue but the yellow is another favourite. I'd love your feedback.
Now just to decide the scale. Hmm, smaller or bigger? What do you think?
