This is one of my more "out there" designs. I wanted to do a design inspired by folk art, specifically Scandinavian folk art. I flipped through my sketchbooks and pieced together different elements until I arrived at this! I love how everyone has a different interpretation of what the different elements are and what it all represents.

All of the fabrics used for the prints are vintage or reclaimed fabrics that are sourced from a magical fabric sale that happens once a year in Calgary organized by the charity Ujamaa Grandmas. Donated fabric fills the basement of a church, with most fabrics going for $1/metre, and all proceeds going to the charity. It's honestly one of my favourite days of the year and has lead to me having a large and cherished collection of amazing fabrics. Because they are purchased second hand, I cannot be sure of the fabric contents.
