.... is pretty empty this week as I'm trying to finish typing up a tutorial for my zipaway tote. I do have a few projects that I need to start or work on soon. There's a quilted playmat I would like to make for a colleague at work who is going off on maternity leave soon and there are a couple of zipaway totes I'd like to finish off for Dinoboy's teachers.
What I do have floating about on my table is this wee sketchbook. A couple of months ago, I started drawing mandalas of sorts.
They were just circular patterns that I just drew in marker pens. I would start with nothing much in mind and then just let the pen move and let the design grow. It started out as a bit of fun - a little something to while away a few minutes. I discovered it was quite a calming exercise and if I felt like it, I'd colour them in like this one.
I hadn't planned on using them for anything in particular but the thought struck me the other day that I could scan these patterns and print them out onto iron-on transfer paper. I could then use them either on totes or tshirts - they'd look great on a cream calico tote don't you think?
