A very kind reader brought something urgent to my attention today. Someone has created an instagram account for Print & Pattern that is not by me. They are posting pictures from this blog but not crediting any of the artists. Something I would never do. I would urge anyone following this account just because they believe it to be officially by the Print & Pattern Blog to unfollow it now, and if you see your own work on there add a credit and complain in the comments. Here is the link - but just confirm this account is nothing at all to do with me or the P&P Blog which does not currently have an instagram account.

PAPERCHASE - gift wrap

We have finally reached the end of our marathon Paperchase review. The only thing we haven't covered is Christmas - but I will save that for later as we are still enjoying the hot sun. For this final day we start with a look at some of the current designs and new arrivals in gift wrap at Paperchase.

PAPERCHASE - store snaps pt.2

And we end our Paperchase coverage with some snapshots from their Tottenham Court Roads shop. The first and second floors of this flagship store are full of gifts, paper goods and crafting materials. Here are some of the things I spotted on the day of the press show. Thanks to everyone who followed along with these posts for the last two weeks - Paperchase is a store who rely on surface pattern design and illustration to make their company original and fashionable so it is a real testament to the power of design.

PAPERCHASE - new season

We are nearly at the end of our Paperchase showcase and today we have a selection of new arrivals that have just gone on sale in stores and online. This beautiful Night Garden diary caught my eye and I wonder if we will see more items in this print. Scroll down for more notebooks, diaries, and the odd pencil case with motifs and themes that include wolves, unicorns, and washy watercolour florals.
