Sorry for the wait! I have been working on this next batch for a touch too long!
I have to say I had had quite some fun reading up on & drawing inspiration from some interesting folks for my next batch of patterns.
Initially I wanted to illustrate flats in a duo tones with a blizzard of patterns but then I realised why not take it a step further and design them based on fascinating real or fictional characters.
Thus this is Part 1 of my flats inspired patterns! I chose 2 fictional characters, Ms. Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and the lovely Thumbelina from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale collection plus a real life art figure, Yayoi Kusama, a renowned Japanese artist for her obsession with polka dots (stemming from hallucinations).

(Note: I so love flats & I dearly wish I could wear them. My heart totally overthrows my brain & its better judgement when I see a really pretty pair, so I have ended buying 3 pairs which I can't wear! They really pinch at the toes and the width of the shoe so I normally put them aside after 3hours of agonizing torture. Sigh* Anyone know of a good brand that doesn't kill your feet? Would love to hear from you!)
