Fruit print range: banana prints

Drawn by Rhiannon new banana prints

Hopefully you’ve read the previous two blog posts and have seen the progress of the banana print design so here’s a sneak peek of the finished designs!

Beginning with a classic half drop repeat, I like the negative space that’s created from the shape of the bananas. I’m thinking this would look fab on a pencil case, might have to see if I can find some banana stationery to match it…

I always like to make a random repeat version of prints too. They take a lot longer to design as you have to arrange them just right and then make sure there are no gaps in the finished print, but I always think they’re more versatile and can cover a bigger area.

I also made the random repeat print with a green and a blue background, but I just can’t decide which is my favourite… Which do you prefer? Let me know in the comments below!
P.S. Does anyone else have a sudden desire for a dress made with banana fabric or is that just me?
