Vintage linen collage

I've been working on a new design for a fabric pattern, the theme is vintage linen.

I have a lovely collection of tray covers, tablecloths, hankies etc, all thrifted from charity shops. Some are immaculate, others showing their age but there are some lovely bits of embroidery on them and as I keep them packed away in vaccu-bags I don't get to see them or appreciate them all together. So I thought if I photographed them and made a collage it might work as a new fabric design and it shows off many items in one go.

I need to work on it a bit more although I have ordered a swatch from Spoonflower to see if it's an idea worth pursuing.
