Dear Daffodils: Passion for Pattern

Passion for Pattern


A few weeks ago I posted about how I'd been taking photographs of farm animals (you can read about it here). I'm still beavering on with my project where I've been creating patterns featuring the animals. I thought I'd share what I've made so far...



I have been inspired by 60s patterns and designers such as Orla Kiely and Angie Lewin because I love the colours and shapes that they use. I created these designs using card, pen, pencil, printing and Photoshop! It took me a while to get the patterns to repeat and to be seamless (that's always the hardest part) but now I think it's impossible to tell where the pattern starts and stops.

The first pattern features the highland cattle, and the second one shows the sheep. Which one do you prefer and why?
