Pattern Camp Weekend

I spent this weekend fully emerged in Pattern Camp with Jessica Swift and I'm SO glad I did! Since it was also my birthday weekend, I was not sure if I wanted to spend it working or not, but I decided to take the plunge anyways. Learning about patterns is just too fun to pass up! I have taken pattern classes before, so I was not a total newbie, but I really enjoyed her approach. I absolutely loved it!

Warning: This class is EXTREMELY fun!

Jessica broke it all down into manageable bite size chunks. I cannot recommend this class enough if you are interesting in learning how to make patterns. At first I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up with a class in such a short time frame, but I really liked working this way!

I was so inspired, learned more about Illustrator and started a new collection of patterns called Charmed Lace. I created a mood board and made new drawings for the collection. I also used some of my ink drawings from Inktober. You might recognize my women's shoes drawings here. I even made a repeat out of one of my abstract watercolors!
