I was inspired by my collection of thermoses (doesn’t that seem wrong like it should be thermi? haha) and I decided to try and make a fabric of them. It took me awhile to get it just right because I wanted to thermoses to have a vintage feel. I had to figure out how to make them look worn, and it took me quite awhile…but I finally got it!

I feel like Photoshop (and especially Illustrator…oh elusive Illustrator) have so many secrets that I still am not aware of. Everything I know about Photoshop (and Illustrator although that is very little) I have taught myself through trial & error over the last 9 years. So I always feel especially proud when I can work out something in the end.

Of course the finished prints do not have text on them :)

I was also toying with this color way, but I couldn’t decide. I think it has a nice retro feel to it with these colors…but what do you think?
