Paddle and Ball
Remember the Paddle and Ball toy? Bam! Bam! Bam! Bam! For the first ten years of my life, I think I must have received this toy at least once a year.
"Be careful, so you don't put anyone's eye out!" my mom would warn me.
I almost forgot about this fabric I designed. I drew four or five variations of the paddle and ball toy and I sprinkled them around to make a repeat pattern ... then, I put 'em in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes and presto! Fabric!
Well. It didn't happen quite that way, but it sorta feels that way.
I feel so fortunate to have the wonderful opportunity to design fabric from time to time.
