My mother's apron

I wanted to create a print more suitable for interiors, meaning it would need to have a much larger repeat. I am always attracted to flower prints in textiles but very rarely give them a go myself. So here it is my attempt and at a large poppy print inspired by a girl's fascination with her mother's apron that was never taken off.

This print is based on an evacuee memory of the jumpers that were knitted for evacuees in knitting circles in the villages to make sure the new children kept warm. I initially scanned in various knitted jumpers and then drew from the knit, before printing on natural fabric.
