My very first original fabric design is well underway. I'm still working on it - I'm still playing with the colours and that. I also want to experiment with different effects (I'm going to play around with giving the lines a bit of 'distressed' texture, to emulate the brushstroke look of a lot of vintage barkcloth prints). I'm pleased with how it's going so far, though.
I took inspiration from various atomic-era vintage barkcloth fabrics. I've got ideas for a couple more currently buzzing around my head, which I'm thinking to produce in a few different colourways as a co-ordinating set with my recent cocktail party fabric.
What do you think?
* Edited to add: picaropicara left a comment asking to see more of the process involved in creating a fabric design, and/or a tutorial. Is this something many people would be interested in? I should add that any tutorial won't be software-specific since I don't use Illustrator, so it'll be more about the principles involved than a step-by-step.
