I had a huge gap on my wall. I thought about stretching fabric to hang on there, and I really love marimekko's fabrics..but I'm cheap and won't pay $45/yard or more for even incredibly cute fabric. So I bought a canvas and took it on...I'm really pleased with the result.

I'm really more into the whole sewing/knitting scene and have never really been pleased with my painting/drawing skills. This was a simple enough pattern that I like how it turned out!

I don't seem to be the same today as I was yesterday.

The rarest thing is to live. Most people exist, that is all.

I see SO much Marimekko (esp.that "unikko")  around here so I'm not so into it but you did a good job anyway!
Clear lines and everything,looking really nice.
Way to go!

Yeah, I know. Seeing it so much is kinda what made me want something of it for myself, I kept seeing everyone making really cute things with that fabric and my wall felt left out.
