I went online to see what Pantone posted regarding the color “Living Coral.” What I found out, is when you try and copy-save an image, you get the web address. This didn’t help me, who does not own a connected smart phone. (I compose on a laptop and use an iPad for other work.) I wanted a few samples of the color coral, and found them at my local HD paint department. Yes, household paint chips match Pantone colors. I just re-noticed that our web theme is coral with turquoise!
Then, when I went for fabric, it started with a zipper on a spinning rack of zippers. There, right in front of me was a coral zipper, and a turquoise one also. I took it around the shop, and with the help of a sales person, found three tones of coral and three tones of turquoise. At the end of the day, the zippers came home also. Next up: Choosing a pattern.
Here is a picture of my fabric selection. Couldn’t resist Kaffe Faccett nor the zippers.
