Dodo bird print fabric. Dodos are alive and well in this quirky printed polyester! The print consists of tightly packed neat horizontal rows of extinct dodo birds, each line facing the opposite way to the one above and below, and set in front of a backdrop a deep coral colour.  The dodos measure just 2cm across and 1.5 cm in height, the spacing between the birds is a few millimeters from beak to back or 1cm claw to claw, and the row above starts at exactly at the same point as the head of the row below, as the head fits neatly in the spaces of the feet. The birds are coloured in indigo, violet and grey, with every 6th bird coloured in an alternative colour scheme of yellow, mint green, aqua and indigo. The medium weight fabric is made from a polyester blend which feels strong and durable yet soft, the fabric hangs well and will be easy to cut and sew, but has no stretch at all except very minimal on the bias.
