Las Flores de Frida :: Pattern Throwback Thursday

Pattern Throwback Thursday
Another Thursday, another Pattern Throwback. This one is one of my all time favourites: Las Flores de Frida. I admire Frida Kahlo so much. I knew eventually I’d do a pattern portrait of her, but it took its time because I wanted it to do her justice. It couldn’t feel like a caricature of her. I hope I have captured some of her spirit in the pattern. If only the teeniest tiny bit.

It’s a simplified portrait of her, but I wanted it to feel like a real person, not like someone who’d been airbrushed to look perfect. She was flawed and fierce. I wrote a couple of posts about the making of Frida, you can find them here: making the pattern and stitching the pattern.
