Gondwana – Lizards
£4.50 – £14.65
If you’re sewing for an animal lover who likes lively patterns, then this lizard cotton fabric is bound to be a hit. From the “Gondwana” collection by Oasis Fabrics, this pattern draws its vibrant inspiration from indigenous Australian art, a style known for its intricate dot paintings and organic forms that often tell stories and reflect a deep connection to the land.
Lizards have been drawn in a variety of poses among abstract shapes and dots. The reptiles themselves are ornate. Their bodies are decorated with rich patterns in warm oranges, cool blues, and pops of purple and yellow. The lively patterns and colour changes reflect the playful movements of lizards as they wander across the fabric.
The background is a rich mosaic of blue patterns. From deep navy to bright cerulean hues, even the background has been layered with dot patterns and shapes reminiscent of traditional Aboriginal art. This use of colour is both bold and gives and even livelier feel to the lizards, creating an eye-catching effect that is full of life.
The word Gondwana comes from the ancient supercontinent of the same name. It was this continent from which the present-day continents emerged. So it is likely that the artist chose this name as a way of symbolically representing a connection to the Earth’s primordial beauty, with the pattern being a nod to the rich cultural tapestry of Australia.
The high-contrast, vivid colours and intricate designs would make any sewing project stand out, adding a touch of the exotic to your creations. This premium 100% cotton would be suitable for a range of projects from quilting to crafting, but we think that this pattern would be especially fun to make an Australian-themed apron, or a quilted reptilian table runner, or even a lizard laptop sleeve to help you spark some creative energy whenever you sit down to work.
At approximately 110cm (43 inches) wide, Gondwana is available by the metre (39 ⅓ inches) or half a metre (19 ½ inches). If you need a smaller amount, it’s also available as a fat quarter, measuring approximately 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches).
So, if your next sewing project needs some lively fun adding to it, then we hope that this lizard cotton fabric will help you create something you’ll feel absolutely dotty about!
