In the DIY/Handmade world trends are sort of like forest fires. They start with a spark of an idea somewhere and Interest is metaphorically the ideal fire starting location, it’s a dry forest in the middle of a drought, in July, and the fire department is on permanent vacay. So what if you knew what trends were up and coming before everyone’s Pinterest boards caught on fire?
Today we are chatting Arrows. We are seeing a whole Native American/Tribal explosion and so naturally arrows would be a part of that. They are a natural progression from the chevron and herringbone trends. The spark for me was this picture from Pocket Tiger on Etsy.
I loved the hand drawn factor more than I probably should admit.
About a month ago I took that inspiration and created this room around it.

Here are some of my other favorites
So do you think you can get behind Arrows, or are they not your aim? (did you see what I tried to do there?! ha!)
