Well, one of my new year’s resolutions is to try designing fabric from  cardboard collages. I have a first attempt uploaded at Spoonflower.This was made salvaged cardboard (of course) and the office photocopier.

I have submitted it as a part of the upcoming weekly design competition that starts this Friday (15th Feb). The theme is ‘African inspired’ materials. My final design (below) is okay for a first attempt.

The inspiration for the design was to emulate the bright colours and patterning of popular African fabrics and bring in elements of contemporary designs like Afrocoffee’s fabulous ‘No Money No Ladies’ and recycled paper bowls.

Still a way to go yet but at least I have made a start!
