Awesome Jenn! I love the video :) I ran into an issue though, which you might be able to help with. My pattern wasn't semaless. Unlike yours, the objects overlapping over the edges of the tile got cut off. I'm not sure what I missed... Thanks again for the tutorial!
Great class! I love the snappy, focused teaching style and I really appreciate there is no music in the background.
