This was my first ever homemade pattern - holding graph paper over a print-out of Rod Lord's design over a bright window!

I wanted something for our house based on the animations from the awesome 1981 TV version. I was close to picking the Magrathean planet cross-section screen, but the curved lines were a bit beyond my designing skills!

This is seriously cool! I looooove the Hitchhiker's TV series, and the animations were one of the best parts. You did such a good job recreating it!
