First of all, I wanted to try out different ideas for the repeat pattern. I sketched out a few ideas onto paper with my Micron pen.

The main thing I established from this idea-generation session was that I wanted the design to be simple. I'm a big fan of vintage fabric and all the crazy, floral patterns they are known for, but for this project I wanted something I could use on everyday clothes and homewares.  

I looked through various ideas I'd sketched out and picked a couple to progress into a possible repeat pattern.

And that's where I'm at for the moment! Watch this space for further pattern-making antics ;D
