5 Drawable Patterns to use in your Next Project

5 Drawable Patterns to use in your CraftingI don’t know about you, but sometimes I get a little tired of adding polka dots to all of my craft projects. They’re the easiest pattern to make, so I tend to stick with them by default (see here and here). Don’t get me wrong, polka dots are adorable, but sometimes it’s fun to change things up a bit. Here are 5 drawable patterns that are easy enough to replicate by hand that will make your next project really stand out!

  • Erin from Cotton & Flax

    Thanks for featuring a couple of my patterns! :)

  • Rachel, I love this post! I have NO talent for drawing so I’ve never tried anything beyond the classic polka dot and figuring out how I can trace things. But these really look doable, and are so cute! Would love to see you use them in a project!

    • Yay, so glad you liked it Marlene! I find myself getting stuck with polka dots all the time too. Here’s to exploring new patterns :)
