Hey guys.


I need some advice.
I’m making a poncho for my 4 year old cousin.
Her Mum asked me to make a poncho for her.
The request was natural fibre and little to no pink.

They paid for the cotton, I can’t use wool or other fibre from animals as I get itchy hands.

Anyway I was just wondering if you guys could give me some feed back on my colour choice.

    1. Not too much black??
      I’m going to do rows of the colours around the edge finishing with black.
      Personally, I don’t like pastels on kids, show too much dirt and food.

      1. You know how theres a strip of red going around the outside? There will be one of yellow, The way I’ve already put the colours around the neck means the yellow will be the row before the black at the very edge. Do you think that will be ok?

      2. Yellow always draws the eye. It reads as a light while the others read as dark, so the yellow is going to be the focus of the entire thing because the eyes want to rest there. It might be just fine if that works for you, balance-wise.

  1. I like it, yellow and all, but I see what Angel was saying. It is a stark contrast to the black. I’m a huge fan of bright colors though!!

  2. I would have to agree with the others. I think the yellow may stand out even more in this pic though because it’s the only yellow we see. There seems to be a lot more of the other colors which makes it stand out even more. It might balance out better once you add more in? Or I would take it out of the block section and just do it as one if the line borders to give the poncho a finished or more dramatic edging. Very nice work! I’m sure it will be beautiful!
