Summer's Here

Summer's Here - student project

This class was so helpful!! I started making patterns about a year ago and never gave thought to how they would work as a collection. Abby's instructions and process gave me a great foundation.

Rough (really rough!) sketch for pattern tile.

HANDMADE ELEMENTS

MAIN PATTERN TILE (HERO PATTERN)

COLLECTION WITH SECONDARY AND GEOMETRIC

I am still working on making gingham! As you can see the lines don't line up and there's a slight gap between some of the stripes no matter how many times I redid it. Although I was pleased with the secondary pattern featuring the fly, flowers and watermelon.

ICONS FROM HERO PATTERN

MOCK UP

Here's a mock up that I purchased but I'm going to try and make my own. I think the pattern may work on paper goods like plates, cups, and napkins.

Thanks again for a great class Abby!
