I've been painting several sewing notions for a few patterns this past week. Thank you so much for this practical, time saver, learning how to make Pattern Templates. I found your course just at the right time.
Shannon you are such a good teacher — so clear with your instructions and logical with your break down of the subject. I would never have thought how to go about something like this without your course, let alone that it could speed up the creation of pattern making.
I created the template in Illustrator then imported it as a layer guide in Photoshop for this pattern of gouache painted thimbles. I made a few background colors, this deep teal being the extreme. But prefer the pale, neutral background that allows the thimbles to sit off the page more.
