How to create the perfect pattern for a summer crafts project

With the new school term well underway, kids are likely missing all the fun from their summer break. Why not use your creativity and create a small-scale design together on the weekend that evokes all their favourite things about summer? Have a scroll through our simple guide to creating the perfect pattern on fabric below.

1 – Create a small-scale design

Pick up your personalised notebook and create a drawing with your kids that reminds them of their best summer memories, whether that’s the happy sunflowers, pink lemonade and popsicles from your garden picnic or the giant pool floats on the beach. Then colour your artwork using markers, pencils or crayons. For the best results, leave the background white and try not to let any of your drawings go off the page.
