This patterning stuff has been really inspiring for me. Everything I'm making right now is still really basic and tiled but I found an awesome and amazingly easy tutorial today on making hand drawn repeating patterns. I cannot wait to try it out! Hopefully I can find all the right cords for the scanner and hopefully it will work so I can get started! I have seen so many cool websites and so many great books that I want today! Why must design books be so expensive!?

Here are some swatches of the little tiled patterns I've been making.

Lastly! I find these two designers/illustrators super inspiring! Julia Rothman and Sanna Annukka .


  1. Dude, Spoonflower may be just the thing for you!

  2. I love these patterns, and couldn't help but think how lovely one or more of them would look on the sides of my blog background. Is there any way I might purchase a few of them (digital files) from you?
    Let me know!
    Love your blog, by the way.

  3. I love your blog to, Mandi! My friend shared it with me the other day! Do you want to e-mail and let me know which patterns you like? I'm sure we can work something out!
