About This Class
In this class you will learn how to turn your drawings into vectors, create a color palette, and finally how to create a half-drop repeat. At the end of the class I share how I use a template to show my patterns on Instagram. I've included three Instagram templates for you to use as well. This class is great for anyone that is new to illustrator or someone that already knows the basics.
It’s ok to go ahead and skip to the video on creating a half-drop repeat if you’re already familiar with a basic understanding of how to create a color palette and/or motifs. =)

Great class, Lindsey! This was an easier method to create a half-drop than what I was doing! :)
Hi! I'm so glad you're here. My name is Lindsey Slutz and I'm a graphic and surface pattern designer, blogger and the founder of East Coast Charm. I'm known for my preppy style that comes organically from growing up near the coast of North Carolina. I also gather inspiration from my travels and hikes with my husband, Eric, and our dog, Willow. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, which lends to helping create beautiful color palettes.
