Print & Pattern 2 Find me in Frankie's "A Little Bit Crafty"

Posts Tagged ‘pattern’

i finally got my hands on a copy of print and pattern 2 by bowie style today and hoo boy was there some excited squealing in the bookshop. its not the first time i’ve squealed over a good design book, but for once there was genuinely good reason…

… because i’m in it! i am in the book. see the book? see my alphabet series designs? i know, i know.. but i’m so. so. SO excited to be included amongst some of my idols (uh, marimekko, jonathan adler, call me!) there are so many more fab people in here: byGraziela,  ellen giggenbach, beci orpiningela arrhenius, lab partners, and on and on and on it goes.


so run out and grab a copy. you might not be driven to squealing mid bookstore, but its a pretty fantastic and inspiring collection of work and i’m so proud to be part of it. well done, bowie style!

 

those of you who follow me on twitter might have seen this chewbacca cuddly toy i made for a gift. you were all so desperate to get your hands on one that i felt obliged to share the pattern i made up.

so go forth and sew! please let me know of any issues with the pattern – its my first try so be gentle.



this chewie is about 50cm tall and made of durable pinwale corduroy, guaranteed to last for at least twelve parsecs. Wait a minute … a parsec is a unit of distance, not time! you lied to me, lucas! lied to me!
