Patterns Please!

All my life I have loved patterns. As a kid I would look at my moms simplicity and vogue patterns from the 1940′s – 1970′s and read the pattern books, then came wallpaper books, then foreign patterns. I sought them out in fabric stores (vintage was my favorite) them I started to hunt in dollar stores for those quirky and wierd foreign (often asian) wrapping papers and printers seconds. I think printing and patterns was a natural inclination for me after all the time spent in fabric stores, libraries, printing shops hanging out with my mom as a kid!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wallflowers

Designer Laura Worthington created this lovely pattern font that can be used to created borders or wallpaper:

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated with patterns. Growing up in an home built in the 1920s that had very interesting wallpaper throughout can have that effect. These icons and tiles are a result of several sketches accumulated in my many notebooks, finally redrawn and assembled into an easy to use font format.

Wallflowers features 26 unique hand drawn wallpaper tiles and their accompanying icons for standalone use. These dingbats can be used as icons, borders, and/or wallpaper patterns.

Wallflowers are very easy to use, for borders or wallpaper, simply type the same letter consecutively (aaaa, bbbb, etc.) and voila! The pattern will emerge.
