Design Development for Lizzie's knitting needle case
A couple of weeks ago, or perhaps a month or two, a friend of mine asked me to design a case to store knitting needles for her mum's birthday.
I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to create some fabric which is specifically designed for this purpose and chose balls of wool as the starting point. The images above are drawings that have been developed into Lino Cut prints. I love the lines and the positive and negative spaces in the 'messy' ball of wool, and the very Japanese-esque of the 'neat' ball of wool. The next step is to turn these prints into a repeat screen printed fabric.
Watch this space.........
