Double Zig Zags Surface Pattern Design

Double Zig Zags Pattern

Double Zig Zags Pattern Development

Design Inspiration

This design started as two inter-locking linocut zig zag patterns printed in red and orange. The messy image would work for a single print, but for a repeating pattern it would look too clumsy, so as a compromise I tidied up the extra bits, but decided to keep the wobbly edges.

Flipping The Design

Simply repeating the same pattern would make the design look twisted. I flipped the graphic on alternate rows which counteracts the twisting effect.

Colour Variations

For my pattern designs I use a catalogue of colours each of which has its own number. There are currently 65 colours that I have chosen from to use in the background of these Double Zig Zag designs. Whenever I find a new colour I add this to all of my designs to explore if the new colour way would work with the pattern.

Buying My Designs

Products featuring my pattern designs are available to buy from my shops hosted by Spoonflower and Contrado. As well as fabrics by the metre, they can produce my designs in a range of home decor items including; tablecloths, bedding, cushions, wallpaper, cushions and wrapping paper / gift wrap.
