So obviously I love patterns. I am very inspired by bold, graphic ones, featuring two or three colors. I have been a fan of the following independent businesses for awhile now, because I love the use of their own original designs in their work. It has also been really fun to watch their product lines grow and how different aspects of the patterns are featured depending on their application. All three of the following businesses handprint their own fabrics as well. I know that I really love a pattern when I say, 'I want to make a frame with that!" Which I say, a lot.
