This is one of my favorite type of patterns to make. Indian floral and vintage inspired motifs. This one - Indian Rose - is actually inspired by a plate that was owned by Axel von Fersen -Swedish noble and alleged lover of Marie Antoinette. He was an 18th century superstar, rich, handsome, adventurer. His life could easily become a Netflix success....
So, what do you have as advice for me to get my creative mojo back? Been feeling stuck for a few days and busying myself with all kinds of things but drawing/painting/designing. A weird feeling of pointlessness as been hovering above me like a gray cloud... So bring on your best tips for evoking sunshine 🌦

Stubbornness, Imagination, Luck, Creativity, Inspiration, Originality and Opportunity! Those are the vertues needed for a pattern designer to have or make in order to succeed. Here I included these words in a pattern I created for the Beautiful Century pattern collection, but didn’t make the cut in the end. ⠀
.⠀
It was inspired by the Toile de Jouy style of old French printed cotton textiles.
I’m not just a pattern designer, business owner, teacher, wife, mother and history nerd. Apparently I’m a freakin pillow factory too! ⠀

Well this girl is on fire (had that song by Alicia Keyes on my mind aaaaaaall day) - making stuff to bring with me to @designmarknadsthlm in only a few weeks. And at the same time as I do about a hundred other things. But weirdly it feels like I’m standing still 🤔.⠀
.⠀
So this Wings & Tails pillow and a few friends of hers will be coming with me on Oct 13-14 to glam up my market table. If you’re in Stockholm you have to come and say hi! More info and other products I’m bringing along is coming soon.⠀
.⠀
Oh, one more thing, this pillow can now be ordered in my webshop. Just saying.
Indienne Delicat was composed with a countless number of branches, twigs, leaves and imaginary flowers and took quite a while to get right. This was one of the Indian floral patterns that taught me the most about this pattern style and since creating this I’ve learned a few shortcuts for a bit more effective process.🙄⠀

Double tap if you like complex patterns and looooooong processes 👆🏻👆🏻
I have a creative block! Been trying to get started with a new collection for days, no weeks now, but something is off. I think it may be the theme I’ve picked. It just doesn’t inspire enough. But there is another idea popping into my head now and then and demandinge my attention, saying: do me instead! Pick me, I’m going to be much more fun!⠀
.⠀
The thing is that this idea is sort of just an idea for one pattern, not a whole collection and it’s why I’ve been ignoring it so far. ⠀
.⠀
Tomorrow I will be recording part 2 of my file organizing method and then I’ll send it to my newsletter buddies on Friday I think. Join if you need some tips too (sign up through link in bio).⠀
