Next you need to create a repeat pattern of your design by using a copy machine. To do this, I followed a youtube tutorial (available at the end of this newsletter) to cut my design in half, tape it together, cut it in half again in the other direction and tape it together. Because this process made a white space in the middle, I drew another leaf there to match the cut up design.
Google “Design Your Own Fabric” and explore the several companies that can print your design on fabric.
Children can color their design with fabric crayons and transfer it to pillows or pillowcases, or hang their colored repeat design on a wall. I loved the process and the final piece was a delight to have created.
Below are some patterns I found when I Googled “Pattern images public domain”.
