 I was inspired to design this pattern after I saw an article online about how girls can love dinosaurs to. I hadn’t thought there was a gender issue over dinosaurs but I have two boys and so perhaps see it from a slanted view.

My boys loved the color pallet and didn’t really recognize it as being too flowery.
