Meet the Print : Coquina — 25 Sweetpeas



Hiya there and welcome again to 25 Sweetpeas! Right this moment I assumed it could be enjoyable to check out one of many patterns in my store, particularly we’re going to try the Coquina Print AKA the Butterfly Sea Shell Print.

The Inspiration: 

As you all know I’m a HUGE seashore lover, I like seashore combing and testing the entire shells on the seashore. One that you simply usually see on my coast is the Coquina Shell! Its a small shell that is available in numerous colours and they’re tremendous small! They’re fairly enjoyable to observe on the seashore, if they’re nonetheless alive and you might be the place the ocean hits the sand you may usually spot them burrowing down within the sand till the water comes again. As soon as the water is again you may see them come up and swim round, after which because the water goes again out, they burrow as soon as once more. Its at all times neat once you discover a cluster of them! Someday this summer time I’ll attempt to seize it on digital camera and share it on Instagram, or Youtube! I feel you’ll take pleasure in it.😊  So the primary inspiration for this sample was sparked by Coquinas. Now, there may be extra to it although, so for those who see a coquina shell open, it truly resembles Butterfly wings. Which is why lots of people discuss with them as Butterfly Seashells. Which leads me to the opposite inspiration of this sample. So for these of you who do not know, in December a brand new lil pet entered out life, and he or she is a Papillon. Which truly means butterfly in French! The breed is called after their Ear Form as a result of when their ears are up the seem like butterfly wings! So the truth that this stuff crossed over simply made this sample a lot extra particular, and one of many massive causes it was right here for the launch of 25 Sweetpeas.


The Making Of:

This sample was illustrated by me, as all of our patterns are, and it was truly based mostly off of a easy spot illustration I did some time again after I was practising illustrating sea shells of all sorts. Coquinas are kinda enjoyable and liberating within the sense that each one of them look a lil totally different, they’ve totally different coloration variations, and patterns. There’s a variety of freedom when illustrating them but nonetheless permitting you to make them look recognizable if that is smart. 


Coming To Life:

I’ve solely had this sample placed on cloth, however I find it irresistible. Its a moderately impartial coloured sample regardless of the actual fact it has colours equivalent to turquoise that we do not usually affiliate with the phrase impartial. It goes with a variety of summer time/spring issues, and dare I even say fall! We have now it on tie on bandana pet scarves, and scrunchies to you and your furry good friend can match. Along with that we even have it on a pet waste bag holder, which I like as a result of once more its such a very good impartial sample that has a seashore vibe that goes with all the pieces in my view! 


I’m so excited to have this sample out there on merchandise for y’all to take pleasure in! Its such a enjoyable and particular sample to me and I am unable to wait until y’all are having fun with it as a lot as I do! You’ll be able to store it now within the store!
