Hand Drawn Floral Pattern

I have been attempting to teach myself Illustrator for a while, as I come primarily from a photography background. I really admire hand drawn illustrations and patterns, and I wanted to try my hand at creating my own pretty little pattern. 

I started out by hand drawing some little flowers, and then transfered them onto my iPad like Elizabeth suggested. I digitized them and cleaned them up, then upoaded into Illustrator. It was good practice for me to learn how to color things in Illustrator because I usually cheat and color any illustrations over in Photoshop, as I find that much easier. 

It took me several tries to get the pattern *exactly* lined up, despite using the coordinates trick. But after my 7th try it finally looked right! I am pretty happy with the final pattern, and definitely want to keep creating and making more patterns to go along with this one. This class overall was a big help!
