About This Class

Learn how to design your own fabric from start to finish in an easy and fun way.

If you are a pattern design beginner and also Adobe Illustrator beginner, don't worry, this is a step by step guide and just the basic knowledge of the program will be enough. In case you're not a beginner, you might be interested to see the custom actions I create to speed up my workflow and how to use your sketches to draw elements without a drawing tablet.

In this class we'll:

  • Talk about inspiration and choosing the main subject to illustrate
  • Organize our mood board
  • Use sketches to draw our elements (with or without a drawing tablet)
  • Create custom actions in Adobe Illustrator that will help us work more efficiently
  • Organize our pattern and prepare it for printing

Di Ujdi

Illustrator & Art Explorer


I'm Nina, even though most people know me by my artistic name Di Ujdi. I'm an explorer, lifelong learner, and an artist.

I've been present in the art world for a long time and my creative curiosity took me on a journey of exploring many different art fields. From graphic design, street art, painting, to UI/UX design, illustration, starting my own fashion brand of art scarves, and falling in love with surface pattern design.
