Design development 

Following on from the previous stencil design, I have continued to experiment with shapes and also colour ways, moving further away from the greens and yellows I had previously focussed on to create a more ‘grown up’ feel as it was mentioned in a tutorial that the designs appear to have been aimed at a young audience.

Translating insect pattern into cushions 

To product test my design I have used the 50cmx50cm sized bug repeat pattern to screen print on linen and cotton twill, creating two envelope style cushion covers.

After a tutorial I was advised to add charm/character to the design by for example introducing colour and/or accents in form of tassels.

I will therefore continue to play with the design and aim to achieve above mentioned suggestions.
