I've always had a bit of a thing about patterns and what with being a designer in my past life this was always inevitable. I spent most of my time at art college in the print rooms playing with the various print process available to me. I ordered a starter block printing kit which had a block of speedy carve rubber in it. Here is a little tester I did with a butterfly. It's a bit twee though so decided against printing it on fabric.
I carved a fish and printed it on a brushed red cotton I found in Boston on a recent trip.
