I recently finished a pattern making course from Nicole’s Classes (they’re awesome by the way and I’m more than happy to throw all my money at them). I’ve spent some free time here and there in the last week making patterns. I’m sure I’ll think some of these are pretty embarrassing a few months from now, but for now I’m quite happy with them! The patterns are a mix of original artwork and live trace from copyright-free material. Please feel free to use any of these as Twitter or blog backgrounds.
