Find Fabric Drawer on Instagram, or meet the maker at the Makers & Shakers on Sunday 12 November at the Coburg Town Hall.
There’s something about a pretty pattern that can brighten your surroundings. Beck Ng’s love of all things pattern and fabric led her to start Fabric Drawer. Initially she dreamt of opening her own fabric store and designing her own fabric range, but has since started making products from her patterns and illustrations.
Beck’s range began with a collection of designs on fabric, that she then used to make a small range of zip purses, cushions, bags as well as locally-printed greeting cards. Since then, she’s continued expanding her range and adding new designs, as well as finding ways to minimise packaging and wastage (by trying to use as much of each metre of fabric as possible)! Her designs start out as sketches on paper, which are then digitised and coloured on the computer. Beck has a particular love of pretty florals, and her patterns reflect her inspiration from living in Melbourne and busy life as a mum.
