January 2, 2009 Feedsack Friday – Polka dots!

We’re starting a new feature (at least for a little while) on our blog called Feedsack Friday. Feedsack Tuesday just didn’t sound right. We’ve done a general article on feedsacks, but there are so many variations that we could be doing this for years.

Today’s special topic is polka dots! An exuberant pattern, simple yet somehow exciting, and so many possibilities. Sometimes they’re dense, sometimes scattered, sometimes large, sometimes small. Some are white on a colored background, others are colored dots on white. Here are a few samples:

As you can see, there are variations in color, scale and arrangement. Our Japanese customers are especially fond of polka dot patterns; the Japanese word for polka dot translates as “drop of water”. Some more variations:
little dots on aqua1950's dotsdots with striped border
orderly rowsspattered dotstwo color dots

Using simple circles of color for so many different effects. Of course there are hundreds of polka dot feedsack patterns, hundreds more that combine dots with other elements – but that’s a topic for another Friday. A few more dot patterns to emphasize the point:
pink to red dotsvaried sizes and colorsrows of dots on red
white on lavendercircles of dots green dots

We hope you’ve enjoyed the first of our feedsack Fridays, more to come!
