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! :)
Best class so far.Wholesome tutorial.10 stars. I appreciate the info on uploading on Instagram and spoon flower which is very essential for beginners.
I have been wishing for a class like this for so long! I quilt and have always dreamed of designing fabric of my own. Thanks for making it possible!
