I was happy to be able to use some of the travel sketches for this, and worked in a few more hikers once I started having to place the elements in the design. At first I was worried that it wouldn't have the right appearance because it didn't look like the very fine and measured engraving lines I tend to associate with toile, but I found I also really love the looser sketchier drawings in some of the class examples and so felt more confident that this could come together.

Now I have a pattern that reminds me of a beautiful hiking holiday we took :)
