These are in my spoonflower library now. I’m ordering swatches to see what the colors really look like. I’m still fiddling around with layout. I can’t seem to get my vision of safari animals at the watering hole to work out. But the costume dudes are still fun. I’d love your feedback, you lovely multitude […]
