Whenever I have a paper and pen in my hand I had the habit of doodling things in paper. The corner of the newspapers, magazines, will have some signatures of mine and some line drawings. Though I am not interested in freehand drawing, I like to draw patterns using lines on waste papers.
One fine day I have come across the blog posts of Annet here. It inspired me to learn more about that and I googled about it. I learned that it is zentangle. It is like a fun drawing which makes us to relax and creates beautiful patterns when drawn repetitively. After that I searched for some patterns and started drawing on a diary. Black color pen is used to draw zentangle patterns, I have drawn some pages and this year I thought why not we transfer those patterns to fabric. So I have decided to embroider one pattern per week on a white cotton fabric so that the fabric becomes a patterned one.
Last week I have started my first pattern and here it is. The first one is the pattern I have drawn on the diary. Second picture is the one I have drawn in a big square to trace on to the fabric. Third one is the embroidered zentangle.
For the embroidery part I have used back stitch for lines and satin stitch for the filling.
I will come up with next pattern in zentangle in the next week. Till then, Happy doodling.
