Fabric Doodle

Still following the black and white doodle theme (it’s not out of my system yet) I have started on fabric – one metre of unbleached calico


This was the result of a day with my housebound 85 year old Mum. In the afternoon, we sat and watched an old black and white film ‘Shall We Dance’, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers made in 1937, perfect to doodle to!

Next day I wasn’t feeling so good, so I spent a blissful Sunday doodling in bed and watched  Jane Eyre with Samantha Morton, made in 1997.

It was fun to hear that my sister, Caroline, was also doodling to Jane Eyre and completed this A3 sheet!


She’s definitely caught the bug too.

There is something SO absorbing and relaxing about just creating patterns that grow and develop without much effort or planning – they have a life of their own.

On the calico I used 3 pens



two ordinary permanent markers and a fabric pen
