Inspiration from Southern Italy
...and some simple instructions for getting started
Last year I spent two weeks traveling with my mom around Italy. As you may know, Italy is the art mecca of the world—the galleries and museums are overflowing with great art, providing a plethora of inspiration. I took my sketch book along and captured everything I was seeing, feeling (eating) through sketches. When I returned home I revisited my sketches and began to research them and transform them into patterns.
This specific pattern can be found all over the world but is actually considered a repeating Moroccan pattern. It is a simple geometric design you can use to create a large rug, a pillow, or a coaster set. The beauty of the geometric is that you can color plan it any which way you please. The interlocking design allows you to size it however you like, running the design all the way to the edge.
