if you've been around me or this blog for awhile, you probably know i did a pattern a day for all of 2013. some were great, some were not. but i did at least one pattern every single day.
in my preparation for surtex, i've been going through a lot of those old patterns and spicing them up a little bit. sometimes a new colorway can bring the pattern to life. sometimes adding some details here or there does the trick.
i thought it would be fun to show you some before and afters.
and please, don't be too judgmental of my befores. sometimes i did my pattern at midnight after a long day of chasing kids, running a camp and being sick.
before on the left, after on the right::
pretty amazing what a little added detail and different colors can do, right?
