MAKE IT IN DESIGN - p&p scholarship

The girls over at Make it in Design have published the top 50 entries from this years competition to win a free design course through the Print & Pattern Blog Scholarship. Rachael, Victoria and the team will then whittle this down to 30 before asking me to vote for my favourite and 3 runners up. Here are a selection of designs picked out from the list (in no particular order) - and you can see the whole of the top 50 over at the Make it in Design blog here. We start with two different styles of cacti design with a lively print above by Michelle Vitale and below by Cynthia Jacquette.
