Project Description

The Class project is really simple: 

  • Using the techniques taught in this class and your own motifs, sketches, doodles to create your own halfdrop repeat pattern!
  • If you would also like to use a mockup (using either April's free bedding mockup available oor a mockup of your own), so show off your new repeat pattern to the world!

I'm always routing for my students and would love to see the amazing patterns you can create!

Please feel free to share you patterns on social media, and if you use Instagram, use the Hashtags #amds or #amdsdesignessentials (amds is short for April Mawhinney Design Studio).

Bye for now!
