Magnetic Core-Inspired Textile Headband #WearableWednesday

I thought you might enjoy the fabric pattern I designed based on the structure of vintage magnetic core memory.

After going to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California and seeing some there, I just had to incorporate it into a project. I designed the pattern in Illustrator and Photoshop, then uploaded it to Spoonflower for printing. I love that it’s an interesting enough abstract pattern on its own to still be attractive to someone who doesn’t know what it is, but if someone does recognize it then there’s a new level of geeky coolness.

The fabric can be ordered for people to make their own stuff, and here’s a headband I made from the fabric.
