Free pattern xar055

A free pattern today and this time a very simple one designed to be used as a wallpaper or general background.

This is a nice 1960s style wallpaper or general purpose design which is available in three colours. I have not included a bump image but it is easy to make your own if you want to use this for 3D work.

It is uploaded to Flickr with a CC licence.

Furnishing fabric xar053

Furnishing fabric xar053

This fabric, xar053, is a very simple small motif pattern which is designed to be used as a furnishing or background fabric.

Again, as many of my patterns, this is a simple pattern in simple colours which achieves the effect of a patterned look with the minimum of fuss.

Unfortunately this is not a free pattern but there are several variants of which three exist on Flickr here, here and here.

You know what I’m going to say: I just love these simple small motif designs.

1940s/50s furnishing fabric xar049

1940s/50s furnishing fabric xar049

I’ve moved back a little in time as the inspiration for this design is firmly from the 1940s/50s and this is a furnishing fabric.

Simple leaf pattern designs with a large motif were very popular as furnishing fabrics after the Second World War and into the 1950s. As that decade wore on the designs began to use brighter colours and smaller and simpler motifs. However, this pattern remained a mainstay for furniture.

As those who follow my blog will know, I really do not do florals and so this is a definite one-off and tomorrow (I looked ahead) we are back to my normal small patterns and fast repeats! However, in the history of furnishing design, this was an important type of pattern.

Two colour fabric xar048

Two colour fabric xar048

This fabric, xar048, is a very simple repeating motif pattern which is designed for fashion and as a furnishing fabric.

Like the pattern yesterday, it is a simple pattern but in two easy colours which achieves the effect of a patterned look with the minimum of fuss.

Unfortunately this is not a free pattern but there are two very different backgrounds to look at. Of all the pattern I have made recently, this is one of the nicest and reflects the type of patterning that I like.

Click the image above and you will see one version or you can look on Flickr here and here. I know it’s wrong to have favourites but of the two versions, I have to say that I prefer the dark one.

Fabric xar047

Fabric xar047

A big jump in numbers this time as we skip through a lot of dead wood to arrive at xar047, a very sophisticated fashion fabric.

Simple colour, simple design makes for a good pattern that will never go out of fashion.

This is a free pattern and one designed to be used as a wallpaper although it could be used in 3-D work for a variety of different surface coverings.

This was not originally intended for 3-D work as I do not now do very much 3-D except for the work that I do with Shade. However, in order to make this a 3-D background I have added a quick bump image and uploaded the result to Flickr where you will find one background, one bump image and one tile.

I am afraid that I will be doing less 3-D work in the future although any images that could be used as backgrounds I will try and create a bump image when I upload them.

Wallpaper xar035

Wallpaper xar035

This pattern, xar035, was created as a wallpaper although it is a pattern that could be used for fabric.

This is a simple pattern using simple colours which achieves the effect of a patterned look with the minimum of fuss. Unfortunately it is not a free pattern and there is only one background since the pattern was made for one particular project. However, having said that, the pattern could happily exist in several other colours as well.
