New Tea Towel Design


I was designing a pattern for tea towels and first started with pencils (you can see it just by the scissors above). But I soon realised my hand didn't draw the lines I wanted so did it by paper-cutting. I made several layers of circles and the result is...



These are pieces of paper which I keep from magazines, gift wrap, etc. It is very useful for making collage and finding interesting colourways. I also use them when I don't want to be "skilful" and just feel like playing around with colours and shapes using scissors like a child.

Hi Hitomi,
I spotted you work a while ago and enjoy reading about your studio time as it relates so well to what I have been doing over the years, and now we have a design name in common! I too have a 'pebble'! I love your choice of colour and you seem a lot more organised about it than I ever am.
Keep up the great work it's lovely!

Love the way you keep your papers organised, I am so messy when it come to organisation!
