My Mum has this fantastic ability to create intricate doodles while multitasking other jobs, and these doodles always attract compliments and curiosity from onlookers. Growing up, I remember that her doodles used to appear on envelopes, bills, telephone book edges – pretty much on any available paper left lying around! I once told her that her doodles would make a great fabric print so I asked her to create me a custom doodle that I would turn into a repeating pattern, without any specific use in mind.
This is the before and after result – it’s pretty cool and completely original and quirky! We’re not sure where this print may end up, but in the meantime it begs closer inspection to perhaps find some order in the chaos, or maybe a sneak peek into the wonderful internal world of my Mum’s mind. Enjoy!
