Ammonites, Dinos & Dodos: A Contest For Extinct Animal Fabrics

JUN 21, 2012 updated May 30, 2016

The challenge to competitors this week to come up with fabric designs featuring extinct animals. While we expected quite a few dinosaur fabrics, of course, the big surprise — to my mind at least — is the profusion of terrific dodo fabrics. Move over owls, there's a new (old) bird in town. You've got 226 fabrics this week to choose from, so have fun!
