Author: Lotta Jansdotter, Jenny Hallengren
A lifelong artist, Lotta Jansdotter has been creating patterns and motifs for fun since childhood and professionally since 1996. Her organic, playful, and timeless designs have appeared on everything from sewing and quilting fabrics to rugs, bedsheets, baby gear, dishes, and more. For Paper, Pattern, Play, Lotta happily focuses on the most basic and versatile of mediums: paper. Here she presents a colorful collection of both iconic favorites and brand-new creations, printed on a combination of perforated uncoated paper and cardstock, all meant to be torn out and enjoyed. She also shares prompts and instructions for creating easy, fun, and whimsical projects, including party decorations and favors, games, gift tags, gift wrap, labels, stickers, stationery, and assorted, as Lotta likes to say, bits and bobs.
