The Sketchbook Project

I have just sent off my entry for the Sketchbook Project. It was a real rush in the end but I got it posted off just in time. The theme for my sketchbook was Stitches and Folds. After a lot of contemplation of how to translate this theme I decided I would create a series of floral patterns by stitching, folding and cutting paper. The designs are quite simple and I was restricted by the size of the sketchbook as it was rather small but I am pleased with the results and feel it has given me some good ideas that I could develop further and translate into fabric. Take a look and see what you think.
