Quickie Question: Do You Design?

By Twistie

(illustration via Instructables)

What you see above is a design for a mosaic, done on a computer. Cool.

I haven’t done much in the way of design for my own work. Just a few pieces of jewelry in copper wire, and in those cases the designs were basically shapes I drew and did in wire lace. It was fun, but not terribly sophisticated design work. I would post a couple pictures, but I can’t find any of the ones I had taken at the time.

Still, sometimes I think I’ll try my hand at some slightly less freeform design. Perhaps one day I will. Right now I’m working more on developing recipes rather than new lace projects.

What about the rest of you? Do you design your own projects? If not, do you think you ever will?

    I’ve designed a few knitting projects–and even written up the patterns.

  2. Whitney Says:

    I’ve designed a couple of dozen patterns for cross-stitch; even self-published and sold a few!

  3. ZaftigWendy Says:

    I’ve designed some knitting patterns, and sold a few. My most well-known is for a sock featuring bits of male anatomy…

  4. Impkitti Says:

    I design for my historic garments (pre-1600). But then, there are very few examples of patterns from that time period. I have just started my first design project in bobbin lace. It is still a super-sekrit project, so I can’t describe it yet.
