Scandinavian Style Border Patterns by Jane Foster

I've recently been playing around with some Scandinavian style border patterns that I might work into some new designs. These start out as black fountain pen drawings.





My friend Samantha Stas

My wonderful friend Samantha Stas recently told me I'd been slipping into some of her new designs! Spot my haircut! She's recently started a blog and an etsy shop.

I've added some rare Marian Mahler fabric cushions to my site made from unused fabric dating from the 50s.

Apple tree bag and cushion

My daughter Polly also printed some fabric with her wonderful apple tree design and asked me to make her a small bag and cushion so I did. She came home from pre-school to find them and was so pleased!

Polly's Apple Trees Screen Print

I had a lovely morning screen printing with my four year old daughter Polly. This is her first ever screen print 'Apple Trees'. She drew the picture and I cut out the stencil just as she'd drawn it. She stirred the ink, poured it onto the screen and we both pulled the squeegie together. She loved it! We've also printed this onto fabric as she wants me to make it into a purse and bag! I'm going to frame this for the kitchen as I'm so impressed.
