HER INTENTIONS WITH THIS PATTERN
Tamara initially designed & created the smaller rectangular Dove piece in 2021 as part of a banner she contributed to a physical installation of “LOVE banners” in the Lynn Valley Library in Vancouver, organized by Berene of @happysewlucky.
She was asked by many for a pattern, as the symbol of the dove has universal appeal and pertains to so many situations, both big and small, so in the fall of 2021 she wrote the pattern, adding the square option, but did not feel the time was quite right for its release.
With the onslaught of the war in Ukraine, like so many, she had the desire to do something to help and followed the pull to create the blue and yellow example in solidarity with the people fighting for peace in their homeland and to try to raise funds to help in the resulting humanitarian crisis. Together we have raised over $5000.
Now that the fundraising is complete, she has removed the image of the blue and yellow dove (you can still see it in her Instagram feed) and continue to sell the pattern as it was originally intended, as a universal symbol that she hope brings light and hope to those who need it.
