Based on the bestselling book series by Alexander McCall Smith, this show takes viewers along to Botswana, where detective Precious Ramotswe attempts to establish herself as a serious crime solving machine. The story line is cute, but what really drew me in was the vibrant cinematography, set design and graphics.
At the end of the very first episode, I noticed a great silhouette graphic of Precious, with a colorful headband and big gold hoop earrings. I leapt out of bed, grabbed my tracing paper and taped it right to the television screen.
I happened to have some funky African textiles from Ghana, a vibrant background color and a black fabric perfect for silhouetting.
I was so excited about this project that I didn't even take the time to embroider the fabric, I just used Fray Check and some fabric glue and ta da....I am totally in love with the results! In a matter of minutes I had a vibrant, one-of-a-kind wall hanging for my studio. I could see these becoming very addictive...I have a few more color schemes in mind!
