Zebra cushion inspiration

Today has been a lovely wintery day in Cape Town and we have taken full advantage to stay at home most of the day. While browsing Pinterest I came across this quirky zebra cushion set:

 Looking at their price, it is totally something that can be done for a fraction of the price. I started messing around on Illustrator, trying to make my own zebra front and back vectors.
This is what I have come up with so far, what do you think?

It was pretty simple really. I copied the photos into Illustrator and then did a “live trace”. Messing around with the Threshold and Min Area, until it looked about right.

A little bit of adjusting paths and erasing random areas that developed and Voila!, a nice vector that I can use for my own cushions, or whatever I decide to use them for.

I tried to mess around with other animals, but none of them work quite as well as the zebra.

Happy imagining 🙂
