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.

  • Talk about inspiration and choosing the main subject to illustrate
  • Organize our mood board
