You'd think I'd already have enough to do what with starting a pattern company and all, but I would really like to try and do this other project, too. It will help me get better at pattern drawing, so it will be beneficial anyway. Besides, the pattern business doesn't have to be up and running asap. (First pattern is coming together though! Yay!)
I've got all three Pattern Magic books, and I'd really like to use them. Which is why I started Project Pattern Magic: one magic pattern every month. I'll choose 4 projects from each book and post about them on the last wednesday of every month. Some of the patterns will be wearable, but the last one from each book will be the most complicated, challenging, intruiging or whacky pattern in the book. I.e., not necessarily wearable :) Below is the first one, drawn on half scale just for fun. Can you guess what it'll be?
Ofcourse it would be really awesome if anyone would join me for this project. So if you didn't already have a 2013 project, this is your chance :) I understand if it is too big or too short of notice or too expensive to get all the books, I just thought that I'd mention that doing this together would be even more fun! You could always join me for one of the months, or use patterns from one book only if you like. If so, let me know!
The projects so far:
PPM #1: Draped Design
