“Pattern Maker 2,” incorporates collaged pieces from my mother’s pencil-drawn dress patterns. She made patterns on paper bags, daily newspapers, and tissue (wrapping) paper. I found them in a Hart’s fabric store bag. The pins are still stuck in the patterns, so I kept them in (see upper right). “Back” in red is her handwriting on a Santa Cruz Good Times newspaper advertising section (early 1990s).
