The theme for this month's Fibermail card is elephant. So I thought... what about an elephant calligram? (olifant is the Dutch word for elephant)
I love the first one and have ordered a fabric test swatch from Spoonflower. I just hope it'll arrive in time to make the card...
I also made a bicycle calligram, using the word bicycle in lots of different languages:
Most words are similar to bicycle ('two wheels') - bicyclette, bicikl, baisikeli.
The Dutch word is fiets (pronounced as feets), a strange but wonderful word - maybe my favourite Dutch word!
PS Yes, I'm still adding beads to the quilt!...
