International Children

This fabric design was created to go with "Harmony Day". What is Harmony Day? From the website: "It's about celebrating our cultural diversity, community participation, inclusiveness and respect."

The fabric is covered in children wearing dress from various different cultures - some of them more traditional then others. There are two main layouts of the fabric at this stage - one with the children randomly displayed, and the other in rows - intending to be a border fabric. I have put several different background colours behind the children. At the moment I have it with a nice olive background, an orange background, a white background or a dark charcoal background. I think the charcoal would be a bit dark, but it was one that was requested.

Here's a picture of a skirt made up in the fabric. You can see the colours at Spoonflower.
