New Textile Patterns for the Summer

Hello Everyone,

I’m super excited this week because my textile samples have arrived from America. I’ve been designing these over the last few months and ordered the samples about 6 weeks ago. You can buy these patterns over at my Spoonflower site, where you will see lots more designs. They are available on a variety of fabrics and some can be made into wallpaper too! Here are some photos of the fabric and some of the designs at the bottom. Hope you enjoy!

Silly Sketches

I’ve been quite inspired this winter to get drawing. It’s something I’ve battled with throughout my student years and beyond. I’ve never quite found a natural voice with drawing, there are boxes of half finished sketch books under the bed that have hardly seen the light of day. This year I’ve decided to face it again and just do something about it. Here are a selection doodles that I had most fun sketching.

Alphabet Drawings

I got a set of really nice Tombow pens for Christmas and have been doodling a lot more over the past month. I recently made this alphabet.

I then fiddled about with it in Photoshop, but I think I prefer the raw sketches.

Textile Designs Stage 1

It’s always been a dream of mine to be textile designer. I’ve flirted it with it very briefly when I screen-printed some designs onto t-shirts and jumpers a few years back. Now I’m old and wiser (well hopefully) I’m determined to give it another go. So, with the power of the internet and a little self discipline I’m teaching myself textile design. Here is my very first proper attempt. Hope you like them. This will be the first of many.
